The Allure of Vivaldi's "Four Seasons"

Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons (1723) has been a staple of violin and string repertoire since its composition. Many virtuosi have cut their teeth on this charming set of four violin concertos which are paired with four sonnets from Vivaldi's own hand.

In 2008, violinist, and Indiana Native, Joshua Bell released a new recording of The Four Seasons with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.  WFIU's Annie Corrigan spoke to two violin professors from Bell's alma mater, the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, who weighed in on the monumental work and this recording.
