Welcoming In Summer With Vivaldi

As we welcome in the official start of Summer on the Tales classical weekend, there is no better way to do it than with Antonio Vivaldi's Summer violin concerto from his famous "Four Seasons'.  The Four Seasons is four short violin concertos, each concerto representing one of the four seasons.

The Summer concerto is the second of the four concertos in G-minor with three movements: 1. Allegro non molto, 2. Adago and 3. Presto.  You might think it starts off a little slow, but it gets hot as a summer concerto should.  In fact, it gets real hot in the exciting presto movement.

Please turn up the volume and enjoy a hot Vivaldi Summer.
