4 Seasons

4 Seasons~ Vivaldi is an amazing work that one could easily classify without a doubt as one of the finest and accomplished compositions of all time. Viktoria Mullova is a rare talent and she plays with a fervor and passion that is rarely heard and she ranks right up their with Hillary Hahn. Being a very devout person, I can not help to think that God spent a few extra seconds on such genius. The book-let whilst a bit sparse and spartan serves its purpose and the photograph on the front is very nice indeed. The liner notes are well written and present an interesting and thought worthy essay regarding this work in question. Highly recommended indeed and I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
