com/Thinkstock The Four Seasons is the best known of Vivaldi’s works. Unusually for the time, Vivaldi published the concerti with accompanying poems (possibly written by Vivaldi himself) that elucidated what it was about those seasons that his music was intended to evoke. It provides one of the earliest and most-detailed examples of what was later called program music —music with a narrative element.

Antonio Vivaldi composed The Four Seasons ('Le quattro stagioni' in its original Italian) in 1723. It is a set of 4 violin concertos that propose an early form of.
Vivaldi separated each concerto into three movements, fast-slow-fast, and likewise each linked sonnet into three sections. His arrangement is as follows:. Spring (Concerto No. 1 in E Major).
Spring has arrived with joy. Welcomed by the birds with happy songs. And the brooks, amidst gentle breezes. Murmur sweetly as they flow. The sky is caped in black, and. Thunder and lightning herald a storm.
When they fall silent, the birds. Take up again their delightful songs. To the merry sounds of a rustic bagpipe. Nymphs and shepherds dance in their beloved spot. When Spring appears in splendour.
Summer (Concerto No. 2 in G Minor). Under the merciless sun of the season. Languishes man and flock, the pine tree burns. The cuckoo begins to sing and at once. All are made to leave off dancing and singing.
By the air which, now mild, gives pleasure. And by the season, which invites many. The hunters set out at dawn, off to the hunt. With horns and guns and dogs they venture out. The beast flees and they are close on its trail. To spend quiet and happy times by the fire.
While outside the rain soaks everyone.
