Someone's put up on YouTube a version of The Four Seasons (here described as Forma Antiqva) that's very exciting indeed. I'm not sure if the posting is legal or how long it'll stay there: you might want to check it out while you still can.

Even more exciting is the piece composer Max Richter has created called Vivaldi Reimagined. I heard one of the movements on the NPR site before Christmas and raved about it to friends, some of whom have since reported they bought Richter's CD. And now NPR has put up on its site an HD live recording of the piece, along with some of Richter's other music.

If you enjoy Vivaldi at all, you really owe it to yourself to at least sample these pieces, and ideally listen to them both in their entirety with the Volume Turned Up Very Loud.
