Vivaldi: The Four Seasons; Rebel: Les éléments
In a logical but not common pairing, this release pairs two Baroque works focused on the natural world — in this case the passage of time and the elements of life. Few classical works are as well known as Vivaldi's Four Seasons, but Rebel's ballet Les éléments deserves more attention. The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin are featured here in superb performances of both.
