The Four Seasons was a piece of classical music composed by Antonio Vivaldi.

The Earth probe Friendship 1 was programmed with at least one part of this piece, Primavera: Allegro.

The music was played when the probe entered the atmosphere of Otrin's homeworld. The natives later adapted the music and incorporated it in a music box as a toy for children. When Joseph Carey heard the interpretation of the song, he was still able to identify it as the piece by Vivaldi. (VOY: "Friendship One")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 283) described this composition, written in the 18th century by Vivaldi, as four concertos with lead performances by violins. Each concert represented one of the seasons in an Earth year.
