In his day, Vivaldi’s reputation as a ‘freakish violinist’ sometimes overshadowed his renown as a composer. He is best known today for his enduring Four Seasons which unites both his virtuosity and vivid textural writing. Expect a fresh sound as Brecon Baroque, under the direction of Rachel Podger, breathe new life into the work.

‘Rachel Podger’s Midas touch makes even a warhorse such as Vivaldi’s Four Seasons sound fresh-minted.’ Sunday Times
