- The Four Seasons, version of early 1720s in the manuscript by Vivaldi -
(Manchester version - Refer at 01:38)

Antonio Vivaldi's 12 violin concertos "Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione" Op.8 of the collection that contains The Four Seasons as 4 concertos. In preparing this recording Giuliano Carmignola and members of the Italian early music ensemble - 'Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca' has worked not from the familiar published edition of 1725 in Amsterdam but largely from manuscripts preserved in libraries in Turin, Dresden and Manchester. (Carmignola's first recording about Vivaldi The Four Seasons - Divox, recorded in 1992)

The stylistic freedom (and technical difficulty) of these unpublished versions offer fascinating insights into Vivaldi's own working methods and reveal surprisingly differences to their printed counterparts.

In comparison with other extant versions, the Manchester Four Seasons display a freedom and spirit of harmonic experimentation which, for Carmignola and members of the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca, provide the key to the works interpretation.

The published Amsterdam version contains less madness than the original versions. By performing the original versions we reveal a recklessness that is much closer to Vivaldi's own personality.
