A unique interpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons performed on traditional Chinese instruments. A rare one-of-a-kind recording of Vivaldi's timeless masterpiece. A magnificent audio treat, both for its brilliant fidelity and the intensity of the performance by the band hailed in China as one of the finest interpretive groups in Baroque music.

Arranged and conducted by Choo Boon Chong, Chong and the ensemble allow for Vivaldi's music to speak more delicately compared with traditional instrumentation on this famous piece. The arrangement is for Erhu, Qung Wan, Di, Cello, Pipa, we believe all beautifully done by The Chinese Baroque Players for a marvelous new experience of "The Four Seasons."

In the very early stage of preparing for this recording, Producer KK Wong, along with this ensemble took great pains to capture the essence of Vivaldi and his period. The recording was made in a country home in Tai Po, China. The space, with its open windows made for a superior production, one that is up to the standards of the Master's Match Audiophile Series.
