"Five Stars ... Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante have captured that wonderful esprit, bravura and finesse which excited audiences who heard I Musici and the Virtuosi di Roma 40 years ago."
- BBC Music Magazine

"There is something in this set that will awaken even the most jaded Vivaldi fan. An amazingly dramatic, rock and roll rendition of the Four Seasons. If you thought this music was boring, you will be in for a shock. Buy it. And play it loud."
- MusicWeb International

Fabio Biondi conducts his Italian period instrument ensemble Europa Galante on this 1991 recording of Vivaldi's classic The Four Seasons, a dazzling, spirited performance. This debut album from Biondi and the orchestra was both a major commercial and critical success, having won several awards and earning instant recognition for Biondi and his musicians.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
