OUT NOW | Baroque Violinist Rachel Podger's New CD: 'Vivaldi : The Four Seasons' [LISTEN]

Channel Classics has announced the release of English Baroque violinist Rachel Podger‘s new album: 'Vivaldi: Le Quattro Stagioni'

Channel Classics has this week announced the release of English Baroque violinist Rachel Podger‘s new album: Vivaldi: Le Quattro Stagioni.

Recorded with the acclaimed Brecon Baroque Ensemble, the disc features Antonio Vivaldi‘s Le Quattro Stagioni (The Four Seasons), il Riposo per il S.S. Natale, Concerto L’Amoroso and Concerto il Grosso Mogul.



"Having played Vivaldi Le Quattro Stagioni since the age of 12 it has been a long-held ambition of mine to record the piece ... but I only wanted to do so when I felt the time was right ... and when I had the perfect team ..." Rachel has told The Violin Channel.

"Performing the pieces one-to-a-part was a deliberate device to enable us to more fully explore the character of each piece and experiment with flexibility of approach and sound ..." she has said.

"I hope listeners are able to absorb the piece in a very vivid, visceral way, and much like flowers after rain will ‘smell’ something new and fresh in this CD."
