Welcome to the Camerata Chicago online store. We have just released our new CD of the Vivaldi Four Seasons. This famous work has been recorded hundreds of times but our new release is the first ever educational recording with explanations and excerpts illustrating his clever sound effects. We’ve also included Vivaldi’s poetry as well as the music itself on the double compact disc.

Director of Radio Programming, KETV-FM, Corpus Christi TX
“We love this new recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons concerti so much, we’ve featured all the tracks at least twice on the air! … This recording is a perfect blend of music and the spoken word … With the voice of Steve Robinson … musically anchored by one of our country’s greatest chamber groups, Drostan Hall’s Camerata Chicago and beautifully laced with the exquisite brilliance of the talented young violinist Amelia Piscitelli. I wholeheartedly recommend this two CD set for everyone’s classical music library.”
Lady Valerie Solti
“For children and adults alike, this recording is a wonderful exploration into Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The performance is first class from young violinist, Amelia Piscitelli and Camerata Chicago, led by Drostan Hall, while the narrative from Steve Robinson is highly informative and expertly delivered. I give this recording my highest recommendation.“
