Antonio Vivaldi is well-known as the Baroque composer of one of the most famous string pieces in history, The Four Seasons. Written in his distinctive style, Winter features melodies often broken into small phrases with forceful, syncopated rhythms, making it a perfect subject for percussion adaptation.
This arrangement for Winter has been heard worldwide on the popular album Bach on Wood which helped garner Brian Slawson a Grammy nomination for “Best New Classical Artist.”
This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes a CD-Rom containing an audio recording and all individual parts available for printing.
