Vivaldi Four Seasons: “Winter” (L’Inverno), complete; Cynthia Freivogel, Voices of Music 4K RV 297


To shiver, cold in the icy snow… At the harsh breath of a dreadful wind; To run, stamping one’s feet at each moment, Teeth chattering in the extreme cold Let us pass our days at home in peace, contented While it rains outdoors… To walk the icy path slowly and cautiously, For fear of tripping and falling. To move vigorously, then slip and fall to the ground Then get up and run hard Till the ice cracks and breaks To hear through the iron gates The desert wind, the North wind and all the winds at war This is indeed Winter, but of a sort to bring joy.

  1. Baroque bows, instruments and playing techniques were used in this performance. We made a video about the bow here: https://youtu.be/tW7TcX8Lx_s There is also a video showing the difference between a modern violin and a baroque violin: https://youtu.be/nsfYMSI3cuA

  2. Wow, what a superb dynamic performance, it was a joy to listen to, thank you

  3. Love this so much I wrote a raving review for a course I was taking. I was so impressed! Received an A, but the performance.. encore!!

  4. Waiting for that lady back in the middle to start DJing and drop the bass, but never happened.

  5. Si Vivaldi pudiera salir de su tumba y viera la perfección de esta versión…( para mi la mejor ) se vuelve a morir de la emoción !!!!!

  6. The best performance of "Winter" I have seen/heard. As a Cellist, how fun to play these works!! Thank you very much!

  7. so everyone's telling why is the bow like that. it's because those are baroque bows not modern or whatsoever…

  8. Yo absorto… pero dice la parienta… del grupo PODEMOS que el arco es obsoleto… que hay que someterlo a votación

  9. Who came up with such comments on this music? Me funny a bit. It seems to me that this music is not only about the seasons, it is music about life, about death, about the tragedy of human life. Not about teeth chattering in the cold. ))

  10. So, Winter is much longer than everybody thinks? The part starting @ 3:32 is unknown to me. Anybody?

  11. É extremamente visível que a moça curte o que está fazendo…que bênção para ela…

  12. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  13. How long will it takes for me from total never touch violin … until at least i can play vivaldi on slow mo <<3

  14. Brilliance. Nothing else to say. There are no better words because words do not apply. This is music in it's perfect form.

  15. I came here to listen and be inspired as I try to write my paper but ended up watching the entire thing and just feel inspired…

  16. Fantastico; espectácular;me encanta Linverno de las cuatro estaciones;en el minuto 6:11 calientan motores y ya después del 6:45 nos fuimos con toda.
