Vivaldi Explained: Spring – 1st Movement
Antonio Vivaldi composed the Four Seasons to represent, through several elements of music, various aspects of each of the seasons (as experienced in temperate regions). This video aims to explain to the listener what Vivaldi was attempting to express with music. Each movement of each season is associated with a sonnet; whether the sonnets were composed before the music or vice versa is still unknown, as is the author of the sonnets. The video features a rough translation of the sonnets (originally in Italian), synced up with the music.
