Here is a beautiful video of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons performed by Julia Fisher and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. I like the scenery, which goes with the musical descriptions in this masterpiece.
The Four Seasons is a series of four violin concertos, each with three movements.

You can almost see and feel these “pictures” by listening to the music alone. The video scenes are a nice addition.
