THE FOUR SEASONS

The Four Seasons The Chicago Consort Vivaldi Four Seasons project was Inspired by a performance of the Four Season's by Violinist Joshua Bell with the Czech Chamber Musicians.  Chicago Consort Director Tom Wermuth and WSSTE Director Ed Kreitman attended the concert and immediately following, both had the same idea: to make a recording of The Four Seasons with a different Consort member as soloist in each movement.  The project became the focus for the group that year and we are very happy with the results.  Enjoy!
