      Vivaldi: The Four Seasons: Violin Concerto in E major, R 269, Spring (9:55)

      Anne Akiko Meyers, violin; English Chamber Orchestra / David Lockington

      This new recording of Vivaldi’s famed Four Seasons – as well as the Vivaldi Triple Concerto on which Anne Akiko Meyers plays all three parts – marks the recording debut of the 1741 “Vieuxtemps” Guarneri del Gesù violin. In January of 2013, Meyers was awarded exclusive lifetime use of the instrument. It is legendary for its peerless sound and near-pristine condition and is believed to be the most expensive violin ever purchased. The violin has been guarded for centuries and has not been in the recording studio until now.
