 Vivaldi's Four Seasons for Harp October 2, 2015 By Ron Ruhoff (Limon, CO) See All My Reviews "I think everyone will agree that Vivaldi's Four Seasons is probably one of the most popular and often recorded pieces in the classical world. This new version for harp by Kondonassis is a very refreshing approach to the original violin concertos. The original is overplayed and easy to become tired of. This harp version is just plain delightful and I love it." Report Abuse
