The Four Seasons
Vivaldi and Piazzolla

There’ll be eight seasons in one day when Vivaldi’s famous Four meet the tango rhythms of Piazzolla’s year in Buenos Aires.

Concertmaster Andrew Haveron is virtuoso soloist in Vivaldi’s dazzlingly imaginative evocation of the sights, sounds and sensations of the Italian seasons. The Four Seasons violin concertos are so richly detailed you can feel the sirocco of summer, hear the dancing villagers of Autumn and slip on the ice of a Venetian winter.

The master of the New Tango, Ástor Piazzolla, brought the wild dance of Buenos Aires into the concert hall. There’s an apt nod to Vivaldi in Leonid Desyatnikov’s sensational string arrangements of the Estaciones Porteñas, but they have an atmosphere that’s unique to Buenos Aires – fiercely sensual in summer, hazy and melancholic in winter, all moving to the heartbeat of the tango. Vivaldi’s seasons enfold Piazzolla’s in this dance around the year.
