Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer's 2000 release Eight Seasons is a conceptual masterwork. Kremer, long known for his skillful interpretations of Astor Piazzolla's Argentinean tangos, had the brilliant idea of matching four of the Latin master's tone poems of the seasons in his native Buenos Aires with Antonio Vivaldi's conceptually similar masterpiece "The Four Seasons," alternating seasons between the two works. Besides the conceptual perfection of the idea, the performances are exquisite. Kremer and his conservatory orchestra, the Kremerata Baltica, do a particularly masterful job with the Vivaldi, avoiding the ornate bloat that affects so many recordings of this work. Their performances are brisk and to-the-point, with bright tempos that add a vitality not often found in this rather shopworn old standard. As always, Kremer's solos in the Piazzolla works are absolutely superb, with the dramatic flourishes of the massed string section providing startling counterpoint, especially on the breathtaking "Verano Porteno". Eight Seasons is a truly remarkable work by an underrated performer.

Review by Stewart Mason, Allmusic.com

Sounds cute, right? Why not couple Vivaldi’s and Piazzolla’s Four Seasons together on one CD? Fair enough. Trouble is, it’s been done, way back in 1996 by I Solisti Italiani on Denon, and better than this one by Gidon Kremer. What we have here is a perfectly fine performance of the Vivaldi, straightforward and supple, if without the “tang” that so many period-instrument groups, from Il Giardino Armonico on Teldec to Fabio Biondi’s Europa Galante on Opus 111 (not to mention classics like Mr. and Mrs. Harnoncourt on Teldec), have brought to the piece. Kremer alternates the Vivaldi with Piazzolla, which also is well performed, while on Denon the two works appear side by side complete, which I prefer. Either way, if this particular gimmick appeals to you–and it’s certainly inoffensive and pleasant enough–then you won’t regret having purchased this disc. If you can find the Denon recording, though, you’ll encounter marginally finer playing and warmer recorded sound. It’s your pick.
