Music ISLAND vol.3: The Four Seasons (ヴィヴァルディ 四季) is a CD-ROM-based music entertainment title for the Pippin Atmark console. It features the musical suite The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, presented with animation.
Three different editions of Music ISLAND vol.3 were produced: The Original edition includes bilingual English and Japanese support. It also supports General MIDI playback, either with built-in MIDI software or an external sequencer like Cubase, allowing the user to isolate instruments. The Lite edition omits English support and MIDI capabilities. The "Oke Pit" Orchestra & Piano Trainer edition includes the orchestral score sheets and a picture book with musical arrangements for piano solos.
Music ISLAND vol.3 was developed by Oracion (オラシオン) with Macromedia Director and was originally released around 1993 as a set of separate discs (not hybrid) for Windows and Macintosh in Japan. Though it is compatible with older Macintosh computers with 68040 processors and older PCs running Windows 3.1, MIDI support requires a Power Macintosh with a PowerPC processor or a PC running Windows 95.
