Enjoy a taste of foreign climes in this programme of beloved string works.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons are a perennial favourite, and famously paint each of the Italian seasons in vibrant sound and instrumental colour. Vivaldi’s expert writing for string orchestra brings to vivid life the sleepy languor of a hot summer day and the crisp crunch of ice of a hard Continental winter.
Astor Piazzolla’s Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (also known as The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) transports us to the steamy streets of Argentina, cleverly combining Vivaldi’s most recognisable tunes with the sensual tango sounds which characterised Piazzolla’s ear-catching style.
Directed by NZSO concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, this programme will also feature fellow NZSO violinists Anna van der Zee, Malavika Gopal, Simeon Broom and Alan Molina playing a ‘season’ each. With its lush string sounds and music so evocative of faraway locales, this concert promises to be a transporting pleasure for the senses.
