Beautiful Music NOW - Summer

youtube

It's the Summer Solstice today! My Beautiful Music offering is Antonio Vivaldi's programmatic SUMMER Violin Concerto from the Four Seasons.

Did you know that Vivaldi included a sonnet with each of the Concertos? As you listen to violinist Cynthia Miller Freivogel and Voices of Music perform the Concerto, you can see the text on the screen.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
