Vivaldi, Antonio

The Four Seasons - 4. Winter

Listen for the many picturesque touches Vivaldi incorporates into this vividly programmatic music: simulations of bird calls, atmospheric conditions, animal cries, sounds of nature (various types of wind, thunder, rain, the murmuring of swaying grass, babbling brooks), peasant dances and even an attempt to describe a man walking on ice.
