Storm is the third movement of the second concerto L’estate [Summer] from Le Quattro Stagioni [The Four Seasons] which is the opening 4 concertos of Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione [The Contest Between Harmony and Invention] that was originally published in 1725 by Antonio Vivaldi. The piece evokes a thunderstorm that damages the wheat and grain crops which is why it has been given the title of Storm. This is an arrangement of the piece for 2 cellos and the boys give a masterful performance that better evokes the feeling of a storm than the original arrangement for violins. The video is recorded next to an ancient structure with interesting lighting effects, rain, and a heavy use of black & white filming with only a little bit of colour included. The track will be released on their upcoming album Let There Be Cello that will be available on 19 October, 2018.
You can pre-order Vivaldi Storm from iTunes.
