Antonio Vivaldi

Violinist Rachel Podger has a unique way of mixing serious insight, historical performance techniques, and a fun-loving sense of camaraderie. Now, she and her award-winning ensemble Brecon Baroque have applied those qualities to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and we’re celebrating the result on WCRB's CD of the Week.

Many composers have used the influences of nature to shape their music, and on this week's CD of the Week, local ensemble Musicians of the Old Post Road presents some of their favorite nature-inspired selections.
