He is best-know for a set of four violin concerto, The Four Seasons (Italian: Le quattro stagioni) he composed in 1723.  The Four Seasons is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. The texture of each concerto is varied—each resembling its respective season. For example, “Summer” evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement, which is why the movement is often dubbed “Storm;” while “Winter” is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes, calling to mind an icy rain.
