Shlomo Mintz: Vivaldi's Four Seasons—'Autumn'

Shlomo Mintz performs from the third movement ("Allegro") of Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons ("L'autunno"), Concerto No. 3 in F major, opus 8, RV 293, accompanied by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Zubin Mehta conducting. Autumn (The Fall Equinox) begins in the northern hemisphere today at 10:49 a.m. (EDT).



  1. A magnificent performance of a beautiful work. Nevertheless, when the Israel Philharmonic performed at Carnegie Hall, pickets outside the building protested their presence.

  2. Was it a criticism of their musical abilities?

    1. That reminds me of a Yiddish phrase my father taught me, "Me lost nit leben!"
