National Tour – FOUR SEASONS…TWICE

Katherine Hunka and the Irish Chamber Orchestra bring their own blend of musical alchemy, combining Vivaldi’s iconic Four Seasons with Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

Vivaldi’s Seasons has long enjoyed immense popularity and never fails to enchant with its freshness and musical brilliance.  Each season features three short movements, prefaced by a sonnet full of allusions ripe for sonic depiction.  Enjoy these musical snapshots like you have never heard them before.

In contrast, Piazzolla allows each season one movement, full of atmosphere. Summer contrasts the sassy, rhythmic tango with remnants of the Italian Baroque while a beautiful melancholic cello solo dominates AutumnKatherine Hunka shines in Winter with cadenza-like displays of virtuosity. Vivaldi’s Summer interweaves seamlessly into Piazzolla’s intensely emotive Winter tango. Spring in Buenos Aires is filled with excitement as rhythmic electricity propels this work to a brilliant conclusion.
