The four seasons: metal versions

The Four Seasons is a set of four violin concertos composed in 1723 by Antonio Vivaldi. One of the most interesting detail is that every concerto presents a variation in the theme of the previous season. And, like Wikipedia remembers,
"Winter" is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes from the high strings, calling to mind icy rain, whereas "Summer" evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement, which is why the movement is often dubbed "Storm."
In the recent days I found on YouTube some interesting metal interpretation of The Four Seasons, inspired by this post by Paolo Gifh on Google Plus.

Summer (Manuel Iradian and David Evangelista)
Autumn (Ross Pike - a storify with the video of the complete concert)
Winter (Ulytau)

  1. GLF questa volta non concordo: sono vecchio e fa caldo.

  2. Mi piace questa deriva metal :) Ti segnalerei i Dark Moor, che coverano spesso la classica, compreso l'Inverno di Vivaldi.
