The Four Seasons


Antonio Vivaldi transformed the tradition of descriptive music into a typically Italian musical style with its unmistakable timbre in which the strings play a major role. These concertos were enormously successful, particularly in France. This work cannot be dated precisely, but it was certainly written after 1720. It is the Toulouse National Orchestra "Orchestre National de Toulouse" with the conductor Gordan Nikolitch on the "Halle aux Grains" stage.

I love that photo! Very good. It looks like you were on the stage at a rehearsal?

Thanks Manuel,
I was not really on the stage but very nearby. It was not the rehearsal. I took a lot of photos to have this one more or less clear. There was not enough light for my camera..
