Overview

Grammy® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell, who has enchanted audiences for two decades with his breathtaking playing and opulent tone, has recorded one of the most popular works in all of classical music – Antonio Vivaldi’s concertos The Four Seasons. This recording of The Four Seasons is coupled with another masterpiece of Baroque virtuosity, Giuseppe Tartini’s The Devil’s Trill Sonata.

Known both for his riveting artistry and his daring choice of repertoire and collaborators, Bell is no less innovative in the way he reinvigorates Vivaldi’s perennial favorite. Bell explains his take on Vivaldi’s classic: “You will never hear two versions of The Four Seasons that are alike, which is why I think there is always room for another view of the piece. My version is very personal.”

Widely considered one of the premiere violinists of his generation, Bell is joined on this studio release by the celebrated musicians of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, who toured the work with him prior to the recording sessions. From the Label

I love " Vivaldi: The Four Seasons by Joshua Bell". Mr. Bell's interpretation is so inspirational that I've played it for my students in the classroom. Parents have commented that the music is so beautiful. And for some families who have just immigrated to the United States, they have said the melodic sound of the violin reminds them of music from their country. It's such a great album to introduce classical music to a new generation.

Josh Bell, an extremely talented violinist, gives a good performance to the four seasons. While the technical aspect is clearly there, the interpretation of an authentic baroque styling clearly lacks. The almost mechanical nature lacks fire, vigor, and the improvisatory aspect in the ritornello concerto form of the Four Seasons to give an interesting unique performance. For an absolutely fantastic modern recording of the four seasons check out Janine Jansen's recording.
