The most famous piece of classical music in the world
Antonio Vivaldi's best-known composition is a set of violin concertos composed in 1723 entitled the Four Seasons (Le quattro stagioni). The Four Seasons is actually four individual violin concertos that have been grouped together, each labeled for one of the seasons of the year. Each concerto (each season) is in three movements with a slow movement set between two faster ones.
Vivaldi's Four Seasons has become arguably the most popular piece of classical music in the world with more performances and recordings than even Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. This achievement is further magnified when you consider that this music lay forgotten on a library shelf for two hundred years. It was not until 1950, when a recording of the Four Seasons appeared, that the piece gained notice. The success of The Four Seasons is an extraordinary journey for a piece of music that had lived so long in utter oblivion.
There is no stronger piece of classical stock music than Vivaldi's Four Seasons. This is music that is recognized the world over which means when you use it as background music, you pull all of that recognition into your own production. The mood of the music is upbeat, exuberant and immensely positive. This has contributed much to its success as one of the most licensed pieces in our production music library.
