But it's Fall...
It's October... surely the Concerto No. 3 "Autumn" would more apropos? *smile*
Well the combination has just happened again! Blind Faith to Vivaldi!
Sounds as good as my original LP I bought in 1725. 
i have a dance ultramax version, but this is the closest i can find on the internet
When in doubt, go to The Academy of St Martin in the Fields
never, ever tire of hearing this beautiful piece of music.... gorgeous!!!
Beautiful version of this piece, but I think it's worth pointing out that there is also a great deal of powerful and wonderful music written over the last 400 years. Vivaldi is great, but a lot of other composers were too.  I love RP, but I do think it could use more of the last 400 years, or at least more of the past 100.
good cover, but i like the original better.
so overplayed.(not on RP)  but i STILL love it, especially with headphones.
I always think 'Lex Luthor.' when I hear this.

Blind Faith to Vivaldi.  Nowhere else does that happen.  RP is the best. 
 Bravo! {#Clap}

U2 -> Blind Faith -> Vivaldi -> Crosby, Stills & Nash...
 
Genius!
 
Thank you, Bill & Rebecca... :)

Amen to you. Not bad cover art as well.

 
I think they missed a trick... substitute the violin for an empty champagne glass and hey presto! you sell 100,000 more copies of the album.
 
Every time I hear this, I think of the local PBS station, which plays this whenever they have dead air for some reason.... LOL.
 I totally agree. RP bringing joy to our home for so many years. Namaste.

When it comes to classical music here, we get the top 40.  
Thank you Antonio Vivaldi  for
The Four Seasons: Spring - allegro

Wonderful,Wonderful RP, you bring such joy into my life with your choice of music from around the world and timeless classics from when musicians could play their instruments live without spending hours in a recording studio getting it 'right'....thank you

Sorry to pile on, but there's always the PSD button. You could also upload some non-trivial classical music for Bill and Rebecca's consideration. 

Meanwhile the rest of us are going to enjoy ourselves.

A Stockhausen is not a Stockholm.

Perfect way to begin my day...Thanks RP

One third of one season.
You can dangle your violin in front of me any time you want me to be your slave...................

This piece was written a long time before Allegro meant  light probiotic cheeses or paving blocks.

Rather than being like you are.... (obliquely obvious, after all 'classical' suggests that they are well known, no?), why don't you simply upload some non-trivial classical tunes for consideration to RP?

Maybe you could petition RP to play Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, instead of the "trivial" Vivaldi - that would set the cat among the classical pigeons. To be more 'challenging', maybe a bit of Harrison Birtwhistle or Stockhausen...

For all that the classical "tunes" are "trivial" (not IMO, but WTF do I know?), I congratulate RP for including them in the eclectic mix. They certainly represent a change of gear...

 
Asked if he had ever conducted any Stockhausen, he said, "No, but I once trod in some."

Please enlighten we heathens with your list of non-trivial classical music.  To your point of not having it at all, push PSD or go elsewhere.

Enjoy the rest of your day.


Great timing.  It's going to be 60 degrees at midnight in Boston tonight.  {#Daisy}
With the snow coming down all around us, this is hope....
Thank you.  I am in Memphis TN  the weather is hazardous today.  The beauty of this music soothed me.

I guess one person's "trivial" is another person's, well, "not trivial."  That's my trivial opinion anyway.
There is so much beauty in simplicity, and so much simplicity in beauty! {#Sunny}

Well, that will eliminate big chunks of the broader musical scape.

I guess I have to like it, otherwise people that in reality never really listen to classical music anyway will tell me that I don't have "taste" and "don't know how to appreciate music", and "why don't I listen to justin bieber instead", bla bla bla. You know what?, I don't like this, the violin noodling gets on my nerves, and a rhythm section is an essential part of music for me.


That's why I love you, Radio Paradise. A playlist that goes directly from Gypsy Tailwind to Antonio Vivaldi couldn't get more eclectic than that :)
{#Boohoo}{#Yes}
That violin she's so casually dangling is the 1727 Stradivari "Barrere" violin. Tells you something about her standing as a musicion that she gets to use this instrument. Her playing proves it. Ten from me.
Beautiful girl on cover {#Bananajam}
even though i do not listen to this kind of music (my loss i know) this surely deserves nothing but a 10
very nice recording!...(my stand partners in college orchestra never looked like her.){#Cheesygrin}
