~ THE FOUR SEASONS ~

01. ESCAPE FROM HELL


Music and arrangement: Mistheria
Lyrics and vocal melodies: Rob Rock

Life, spirit, hope, inception Shine!


Pain, bearing, bliss, conception When the seasons change and the truth unfolds
Breathe, waking, feed, infusion Will your path leave regret?
Live, loving, learn, confusion Shine!
When the curtain falls and the veils removed
Who made who, who controls the future? Will you rise from the depths?
Days of wonder, nights of darkness
Change your view, wisdom increases You, you feel it, don’t deny in your conscience
Leaving all to challenge weakness Hell, ever waiting, you and I are the victims
Life, is a mist in the air, just a vapor
Come, say your prayers, Time, like a shadow disappears in the twilight
take your faith, conquer all
Come, say your prayers, take your faith - conquer all
Tell me, who can save you? Escape from Hell
Come take my hand,
shadows fall, twist of fate Take, take my hand, shadows fall, twist of fate
Escape from Hell
Vision, power, control, here we are...
Say, say your prayers, shake your fear - hear the call
You were fashioned by the grand design, Escape from Hell
you alone a mystery in time
A spirit trapped inside a cage of flesh, Destiny is in your hands, got to shine and forge ahead
born into a universal test of the ages Search beyond the paradox of life
Escape from Hell
Call it fate or destiny, Time will tell, the seasons change, beyond the realm the glory
in your heart you hold the key fades
Marching through the sands of time, You’ll never know until the last refrain
the winds of change, the road of life Escape from Hell
Endure the dark to find the light,
reaching for that endless sky,
Choices made now plain to see,
consequences meant to be

02. THE ILLUSION OF ETERNITY
Spring #1 - Allegro
Arrangement: Douglas R. Docker
Music: Antonio Vivaldi - Douglas R. Docker / Lyrics: Douglas R. Docker

I’m sitting beside my window This world is in deep confusion


I’m watching the sun as it glows There’s crying and dying
And I know as you know But that’s for another day
New life begins today
I’m sitting beside my window
I know this is just illusion I’m watching the sun as it glows
This world is in deep confusion And I know as you know
There’s crying and dying New life begins today
But that’s for another day
I know this is just illusion
I’m sitting beside my window This world is in deep confusion
I’m watching the sun as it glows There’s crying and dying
And I know as you know But that’s for another day
New life begins today
I close my window and see
I know this is just illusion That there is no future for me
This world is in deep confusion As the final chapter begins I say
There’s crying and dying Let the wheel of life take another spin
But that’s for another day Since my bones grow old and weak

There is life everywhere But now it’s time for life to celebrate
In the land, in the air The illusion of Eternity
In the water and trees
Through the clouds and the seas As someone pulls up the shades
I’m watching the sun as it fades
As I dance with the bees And I know as you know
‘Tween the wolf and the sheep My life must end today
See Creation unfold
When the One is in control I know this is no illusion
My mind is in deep confusion
No Satanic Mills today I’m crying and dying
Now you’ll hear A B C As new life saves the day
After D there’s no E
Yet today we live free Now it’s time for life to celebrate
Eternity must die for life
So this is life and life is now This is life
I know this is just illusion

[ PA RT 2 ] L I G H T Dall’oscurità, vita!
Lame nell’oceano
Dall’oscurità, vita! Ah! Nascere!
Lame nell’oceano Liquido che va, aria!
Ah! Nascere!
Liquido che va, aria! Oh divinità!
Oh divinità! Piango anche per te
Piango anche per te
Learning life one day at a time
I take form in my mother’s womb Learning fear and love and humankind
Cells keep splitting into something new Infinite space before me still shines
Hands and feet in the liquid sea Nothing seems impossible, this world is mine
While my eyes and ears still can’t see or hear
Luce dall’oscurità
Dall’oscurità, vita! Primavera libera
Lame nell’oceano Ah! Nascere!
Ah! Nascere! La mia libertà, viva!
Liquido che va, aria! Oh divinità!
Oh divinità! Ridi tu con me
Piango anche per te
From the dark, entropy
My life begins, it’s the great mystery From the light, energy springs free
Lungs fill with air and my eyes open wide Atoms form endlessly
The future before me, the world lies at my feet Matter’s born from the will to live
No past to scar my present, so good to be free

05. SUN OF GOD
Summer #1 - Allegro non molto
Arrangement: Mistheria
Music: Antonio Vivaldi - Mistheria / Lyrics: Douglas R. Docker

I crawl out from the mud When you’re 21


The clay of my body comes to life You’re only 21
Perfect design The mistakes you have to make
Of body and mind Rites of passage you must take
Memory sharp Someday you will make the grade
My brain is a shark
When you’re only 21 the world
I was created for a purpose Is just an oyster to be cracked
To rule the world and conquer the weak Devoured still alive
Bow to me, chain the free, fist of steel Your fangs are open wide
Rise Apollo rule the world Till you’re so sick you’ll die

Feel the Sun of God heat the world So grab life and squeeze it hard
Hear the Son of Man fill the world Till it squirms in your hand
Now the struggle’s behind Twenty-one!
No tangents collide
No limits can be achieved
True, the future is bright when you are twenty-one

The arrogance of youth


Is something to behold
Energy unbound
No wisdom to be found
The mind is razor sharp
Still looking for some heart
Egos that collide
This labyrinth of thine

Ten years have gone He feels your love


And the arrogance of youth is lost Immortal soul for a day
It’s slowly come undone Survival is in your hands
The miracle, this child of ours
The need for stability
For security The center no more
In your mind I now live to serve and protect

Child, as you enter the world This child of ours


You’re changing my life
The miracle unfolds before me To feel this love
As you set me free from myself No more selfish mistakes

The center no more The center no more


I now live to serve and protect I now live to serve and protect

This child of ours This child of ours

To feel this love To feel this love


No more selfish mistakes No more selfish mistakes
To feel this love
Your hand grabbed my finger For this child of ours
You smile full of love
Your eyes pierce my heart
I feel alive in the mystery of your presence

08. THE AGE OF DREAMS


Autumn #1 - Allegro
Arrangement: Frank Caruso
Music: Antonio Vivaldi - Frank Caruso / Lyrics: Douglas R. Docker

I’m about to hit the midlife point Cracks appear over my armor shell
A state of flow The wishing well
As galaxies glow For whom rings the bell?
No eternity Gone infinity
Forever can’t it last? The age of dreams at last
Though so much has passed? Has now come to pass

My first glimpse into the end My first glimpse into the end
Mortal man defined Mortal man defined
Still unfocused and so blurred Still unfocused and so blurred
The end of the line The end of the line

11. THE MEANING OF LIFE


Winter #1 - Allegro non molto
Arrangement: Pawel Penksa
Music: Antonio Vivaldi - Pawel Penksa / Vocal melodies: Mistheria / Lyrics: Douglas R. Docker

The days are getting cold There’s no meaning to life


My body growing old Other than the ones you love
My working days are gone Put your chips on today
So where do I belong? There is no tomorrow
I, am I getting so blind? I cannot follow my fate There’s no other way
Now, the hour is getting so late, so late for painful regrets No matter how much time you’ve got to live
Each second seems so loud The ones you love are really all that you need
As a hammer inside! You might be old but there is much
So much to give, before the end...
The secrets of my youth
Are calling me too soon Tell me the meaning of living and dying
The final chapter looms for me Give me the meaning of life
I feel the path of love
Tell me the meaning of living and dying It pushes me hard!
Tell me...
Give me the meaning of life Tell me the meaning of living and dying
the meaning of life Give me the meaning of life
I feel the path of love I feel the path of love
It pushes me hard as rock! It pushes me to rock!

Time to face my final hour Yet energy flows through my veins


Celebrate my life with a vengeance Although I seem insane, wisdom still in my brain
In my heart there is joy for life
See my final day
Time to face my final hour
Time to face my final hour I celebrate my life with a vengeance
I celebrate my life with a vengeance I’m blind and barely hear what you’re saying
I’m blind and barely hear what you’re saying
Yet energy flows through my veins
Yet energy flows through my veins Although I seem insane, wisdom still in my brain
Although I seem insane, wisdom still in my brain In my heart there is joy, the gift of my life Joy
In my heart there is joy, the gift of my life In my heart there is joy, the gift of my life For
No regrets I did give my best Joy for the gift of life! The gift of life!

Time to face my final hour


I celebrate my life with a vengeance
I’m blind and barely hear what you’re saying
My heartbeat fading with every breath

[ PA RT 1 ] S K Y FA L L I’m not sure what to do… I’m not sure what to be


I don’t know who I am, never lived life authentically.
Doomsday!
Music thats all I need is music You should be
E’ il mio giorno studying…
Sto morendo nel mio cuor play everyday on more music
E’ il tuo giorno That’s all I need is music don’t waste your time
Sei immortale play everyday on those silly dreams
Devi dire cosa tu vuoi dalla morte
Ritornar dopo questo giorno It’s time I find myself, it’s time I make a stand,
per vivere le tue stagioni! I know now who I am, you cannot spoil my plan

[ PA RT 2 ] D O O M S DAY My soul yearns to be more happy,


creative, to bring joy to others
Now…when our end has arrived I won’t allow you to control my dreams,
We return to the earth or manipulate or control me
yet there’s still more of life to live… I will create my own Heaven on Earth
Have we all been allowed
to be who we will be And now, when our doomsday has come
past or eternity… Will we rise in the sky
Or will we fall below the ground
In our early years we are told truth Reviewing the seasons of life
flowing lots of tears, dreams pulled from root Regardless of love or strife
We enter eternity…
Conditioning strong, or we are wrong
What will it take for us [ PA RT 3 ] R E S U R R E C T I O N
To reprogram our song?
Le quattro stagioni
I won’t live in your hell anymore, that’s your dream. Non dimenticar
I will dream a better dream… Non c’è fin
I will create my own personal heaven. Al cammin
Della vita
I… I only want to dance, it’s what I love to do Superar l’eternità
it’s sets my soul on fire, but dad says stay in school Eternità!

The “Vivaldi Metal Project” is a music creation born from an idea conceived and developed
by Italian keyboard player, composer and producer MISTHERIA.

Production, ideation, concept and artistic direction by MISTHERIA | www.mistheria.com

Co-produced by Alberto Rigoni | www.albertorigoni.net

www.vivaldimetalproject.com

The project is a symphonic-metal opera based on Antonio Vivaldi’s Baroque masterwork “The Four Seasons”, featuring more than
130 amazing metal and classical artists, orchestra, a string quartet and three choirs from all over the world. The album features 14
tracks - all the movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s original score plus two original new songs written by Mistheria.

The impressive roster of artists probably makes this titanic album the biggest all-star project ever!

Back in 2013, Mistheria started thinking about making a metal version of “The Four Seasons”, a masterpiece that he loved and kept
listening to since his childhood. Mistheria started to play and record all the movements on the piano but then felt that a parallel
symphonic-metal version would have been the perfect continuation. Therefore, he recorded and uploaded a short trailer on the
web to start engaging musicians. A few days later, Italian bassist and composer Alberto Rigoni, who had already collaborated with
Mistheria by recording bass on his previous solo album, learned about the project and contacted Mistheria offering his support to
work on the project as co-producer.

Also, Mistheria made the “innovative” choice - never done so far - to add lyrics and singers to “The Four Seasons” which, as composed
by Vivaldi, is an instrumental work. For this important task, he invited Douglas R. Docker who perfectly translated the producer’s
concept into brilliant lyrics. Additional lyrics were written by Mistheria, Rob Rock and Lance King.

A cast of 10 awesome arrangers joined Mistheria creating epic and memorable music, combining a standard metal band lineup with
strings, orchestra and choir: Douglas R. Docker, Francesco Dall’O’, Frank Caruso, Gabriels, Keiko Kumagai, Nicolás Waldo, Pawel
Penksa, Tomas Varnagiris, Yannis Androulakakis and Zhivko Koev.

It took more than 2 years of intensive non-stop hard work to get the album done.
