This work for flute trio is in no way connected to the famous work of the same name by Vivaldi. In his Four Seasons, Mario Valsania sees the changing seasons from a child's point of view: Spring, out in the fresh air on a bike ride; the unhurried Summer; Autumn and the new school year; and finally Winter, with its Christmas celebrations....
This is a composition in a classical styles but with advanced, non-traditional harmonies. The composer's aim was to bring out the full richness f the flute's range and character - such as staccato and double-tonguing. In Winter, various traditional Christmas carols can be heard.
