The Great Kat - Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" music video:
Antonio Vivaldi, violinist and Baroque composer, became a priest in 1703. Known as "The Red Priest" because of his red hair, Vivaldi wrote the famous “The Four Seasons” ("I Quattro Stagioni") in 1723, one the most popular Vivaldi pieces. Comprised of four concertos, The Four Seasons is one of the earliest examples of "Program Music" -- music that evokes scenes. Transformed brilliantly by The Great Kat, Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” is shredded at hyperspeed by the legendary “Goddess of Metal” – on BOTH Guitar AND Violin! This music video shows the viewer Antonio Vivaldi “The Red Priest” as he furiously composes in 1723 at his desk in Italy. Vivaldi then previews his new masterpiece to “Katherine” his star violin student (The Great Kat in school outfit). The video then goes back to the future, as The Great Kat appears as a shredding guitar virtuoso performing this historic work on both guitar and violin with her all-male hunk metal band. The Great Kat’s blistering Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” recording is featured in major TV commercials, including Tesco’s “Call of Duty: Ghost” in the UK and listed in major online encyclopedias as one of the most famous recordings of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” in history. The Great Kat, Juilliard grad violin virtuoso and “Top 10 Fastest Shredders Of All Time” - Guitar One Magazine, is the only guitar/violin double virtuoso shredding Vivaldi’s masterpieces at high speeds and bringing his genius music to a whole new generation with metal. The Great Kat Guitar/Violin Goddess celebrates Vivaldi’s 343rd birthday (born on March 4, 1678) with this powerful music video.
