"Album of the Week ... the playing is bold and vividly pictorial throughout, from the icily incisive opening of Winter to the sultry and languid Summer."
- WQXR-FM

"Four Stars ... the standard of performance in terms of articulation, phrasing, rhythmic zest and instrumental balance is well up to the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s high level, but there is an extra dimension of imagination and individuality here that more than justifies adding yet another Seasons to the well-stocked shelves."
- The Telegraph

Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, a team internationally recognized for its virtuosity, energy and individuality, presents this interpretation of Vivaldi's springtime bird song, summer thunderstorm, autumn hunting and chattering teeth of icy winter. The programme also includes two concertos from L'estro armonico, as well as a Sinfonia for strings originally intended as the overture of Vivaldi's opera La verità in cimento.

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!
