The Four Seasons of Vivaldi

Eight Seasons in One Day when Vivaldi Meets Piazzolla

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.

A Sydney Symphony Family Event with Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Antonio Vivaldi was one of the best violinists of his time and wrote many pieces we love today. Most popular of all are his Four Seasons violin concertos. They paint pictures of the Italian seasons: the gentle breezes of Spring, insects buzz in the Summer heat, a hunt in Autumn and sitting inside next to the fire listening to the rain in Winter.

Concertmaster Andrew Haveron plays Vivaldi’s colourful and very tricky concertos. Brilliant young violinist Christian Li (aged 10) performs the Summer concerto, with its exciting lightning storm.
