"The Four Seasons" Antonio Vivaldi - one of the most famous works of the composer. The name of the great Italian, who created approximately 550 concerts and several dozen operas is synonymous with the "The Four Seasons". "Red Priest" (the so-called composer for the unusual color of hair and the dignity of the priest) perfectly played the violin. Few at that time could compete with him in virtuosity: in the guidebook for the guests of Venice for 1713 he is mentioned as the best violinist of the city. And after three centuries the concerts of the cycle - "Spring", "Summer", "Autumn" and "Winter" are the most executed on all continents.

In the 20th century, the Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla created his cycle "The Seasons in Buenos Aires". This composer became famous for giving a new life to tango. He took folk music and turned it into a high art. He later called all his work "a great transformation of tango."
