"It's been 287 years since Antonio Vivaldi wrote his popular masterpiece "The Four Seasons". Following in these musical footsteps, Lars Leonhard now takes on the idea of molding the distinct characteristics of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter into twelve pieces of electronic music. After the previous, purely instrumental releases by the DÜsseldorf artist - the remix EP "No Comment" (2012) and his debut album "1549" (2011) - his new twelve-track album "Seasons - Les quatre saison" features singer Alvina Red lending her voice to the first of each four seasons' three tracks in pure French - a language whose natural melody is tailor-made for Leonhard's synthetic yet warming sounds. Living in Stockholm, Alvina Red is no newcomer either, gaining her first professional experience at the age of ten as a background singer for Agnetha Fältskog: the blonde Abba singer was looking for beautiful children's voices for her song "Take Good Care Of Your Children" (the b-side of her hit single "The Heat Is On") and made a find in the clear-as-a-bell voice of young Alvina. Following further engagements in professional choirs including the Nobel Prize awards in Stockholm and as a singer, songwriter and keyboard player for several band projects, Alvina and Lars Leonhard get together on this joint release."
