A colorful, cloisonne-style windcatcher has 4 icons, one for each season.
This chime is tuned to the final chord from the 2nd movement of Concerto #3 (Autumn) of Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.
This series of concertos written for violin, strings and basso continuo
was first published in 1725. This popular piece has been used in many
movies and is a popular wedding processional. One of Vivaldi's best
known works, The Four Seasons is one of the most well known
examples of music from the Baroque period. Vivaldi wrote individual
sonnets to go with each of the four concertos, with each sonnet
consisting of three parts that match the fast - slow - fast of the three
Here's part of the sonnet for Autumn:
Celebrates the peasant, with songs and dances, The pleasure of a bountiful harvest. Everyone is made to forget their cares and to sing and dance By the air which is tempered with pleasure And by the season that invites so many, many Out of their sweetest slumber to fine enjoyment.
