Even with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround, NAXOS Vivaldi: The Four Seasons [Lin/Sejong] (Blu-ray audio release 2011-3-28) is a disappointment for me.  The musical pace does not sound right to me, and I heard strange notes that I do not recall hearing in two other versions.  I suspected that its limited 15-person chamber orchestra might have contributed to my disappointment.  I’d like to be able to see the conductor and other musicians performing, however boring that might be, but this Blu-ray audio disc has none of that.

I still prefer this old DVD featuring Herbert von Karajan:
