Winter thrills with Vivaldi

I really enjoy Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and I’ve been listening to variations of a few of the movements/pieces/parts (I’m not sure what the terminology is) from Four Seasons in the last day or so.

Two of my favourites are these:

I’ve also really enjoyed watching different performances on YouTube, such as these:

We’re expecting rain in the coming week. It will be a perfect opportunity to play one of these pieces for dramatic effect when a storm arrives. Just for fun. 😁

Vivaldi’s Summer 3, spiced up

I’m listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (well, a version of it anyway) while I work through exercises in Learn Python 3 the Hard Way, and I really like how Vivaldi’s Summer 3 has been tweaked in the album “Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons“.

Here’s a fairly typical rendition of this track:
