Fresh Aire 4 is the fourth album in new age musical group Mannheim Steamroller's Fresh Aire series. The album was originally released in 1981. Each of the first four Fresh Aire albums is based on a season; Fresh Aire 4's theme is Winter. The entire album was mixed and recorded digitally and was also one of the first CDs released.
"Red Wine," a re-arrangement of the traditional folk song, "Greensleeves", is a sign of the group's successful Christmas albums to come. The track "Embers" is a slower, reflective reworking of the spritely "Saras Band" from the first Fresh Aire.
