Summer Series II – The Eight Seasons

Summer Series II – The Eight Seasons

Saturday 23 July 2022
St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, 19:30 

Piazzolla The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
Vivaldi The Four Seasons

Soloists of the Oxford Philharmonic
Marios Papadopoulos
 harpsichord/director

Not four seasons, but eight seasons. Vivaldi’s set of four concertos depicting scorching sun, searing storms and spring dances sound as evocative today as they did in the early 18th century. Few composers have matched the Italian’s combination of virtuosity with melodic outpouring and orchestral colour. One who did lived more than two centuries later in an entirely different corner of the planet. Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, interspersed with Vivaldi’s seasons in this concert, re-imagine the sound world of the Argentinian tango in music by turns debonair, sultry and evocative.

From £10
