What if "The Four Seasons", one of the most popular pieces of all time, wasn't an original composition but an arrangement of a lost original? What if Vivaldi had scored his most famous work for a mixed chamber ensemble with violin, flute, and oboe, before reworking it for traditional string orchestra, as he did with "Il Gardellino", "La Tempesta di Mare", and other concertos? House of Time's thrilling rendition of Gonzalo X. Ruiz's colorful reconstruction of this speculative original presents Vivaldi's naturalistic masterpiece as you've never heard it before. From singing birds to babbling brooks and barking dogs, from summer storms to wintry winds, the seasons come alive in this new chamber setting. Carolyn Yarnell's riveting "Three Graces" is a savage and beautiful musical portrait of three strong women who shaped her childhood in the Sierra Nevada. Commissioned by Gonzalo X. Ruiz and guest flutist Stephen Schultz, it earned them the 2000 ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming.
