Antonio Lucio Vivaldi(1678-1741)

Il Cimento dell'Armonia e dell'Inventione Op. 8
(The Contest between Harmony and Invention Op. 8)
Le Quattro Stagioni(The Four Seasons)
Violin Concerto No. 2 in g minor "L'estate(Summer)", RV 315

I. Allegro non molto(0:00)
Under the harsh season's blazing sun, men and flocks languish and pines are scorched. We hear the call of the cuckoo, followed by sweet songs of the turtle dove and finch. Gentle western breezes blow....until the ominous north winds suddenly sweep them away. The little shepherd sobs in fear of the violent storm... and his destiny.

II. Adagio e piano - Presto e forte(5:13)
His tired limbs are roused from rest, frightened by the lightning bolts and roaring thunder, as flies and gnats swarm furiously.

III. Presto(7:35)
Alas, his worst fears are realized, as huge hailstones fall from the roaring heavens, cutting the heads from the proudly standing grain.
