"The Four Seasons" has been recorded countless times, but this recording of Vivaldi’s most popular work, performed by the Academy and Alan Loveday on solo violin, remains a benchmark. This was also a ground-breaking recording for the Academy, selling over 500,000 copies, resulting in the award of the Academy’s first ever gold disc. Also featured are Vivaldi piccolo and bassoon concertos, and a concerto for two oboes.

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!
