22nd of July 2016 is another extremely important day for our orchestra Sinfonietta Consonus. We would like to proudly announce the official premiere of Vivaldi Metal Project „The Four Seasons” CD.
What is this all about?
Whole story started in 2013, when head of the project - Mistheria, started to think about making a metal version of “The Four Seasons”. After two years of hard work, this unique idea became reality. Together with Italian bassist and composer Alberto Rigoni (solo artist, TwinSpirits, Kim Bingham, The Italians, BADASS), they gathered a group of over 130 musicians from all over the world and recorded a symphonic-metal opra based on Antonio Vivaldi’s Baroque masterwork “The Four Seasons”. What is more, Mistheria made an innovative choice, something that have never been done before – he decided to add to classic masterpiece lyrics and singers. Isn’t this impressive?
Nearly 6 months ago we entered the Radio Gdańsk studio to record symphonic parts arranged by Michał Mierzejewski and along with that we became a part of this amazing experience. It was another opportunity to work with our great collaborators – conductor Szymon Morus and sound engineer Jakub Mańkowski. It was not only great fun but also great honor, as VMP is one of the biggest music projects in history.
The album is a full 74 minutes of intense, passionate, fascinating, powerful and majestic experience!
We hope you’ll enjoy it, as we do!
The full album is FROM NOW available on iTunes!
