Barns of Rose Hill Chamber Orchestra Presents: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons & Piazzolla’s Four Seasons

October 15 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Barns of Rose Hill Chamber Orchestra will perform Vivaldi’s famous composition Le Quattro Stagioni (The Four Seasons), as well as Leonid Desyatnikov’s arrangement of Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires), by famous tango composer Ástor Piazzolla. The audience will learn about the importance of Vivaldi’s composition, as it was one of the earliest examples of program music, which is music with a narrative element. The conductor will point out certain examples, such as the violas mimicking a shepherd’s barking dog during the Spring movement.

Desyatnikov’s arrangement pushes the concept of program into new territory. As a preeminent figure in the Nuevo Tango movement, Piazaolla’s work was heavily influenced by classical music, such as Vivaldi’s. Desyatnikov takes this connection even further by inserting Vivaldi themes directly into the The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. He uses the Vivaldi quotations to reflect the inversion of the seasons between the Northern and Southern hemispheres. For example, Verano Porteño (Summer) has added elements of L’inverno (Winter) of Vivaldi.

This program will help the audience understand classical music- often considered a very static and conservative genre- as an artform that is constantly changing and evolving. By giving insight into the composers’ intentions, we hope to demystify classical music, and make it more accessible to the audience. We hope the audience is inspired to pursue music they would not have otherwise- be it Baroque, tango, or anything in between.

Times: Doors open at 6:00 PM show starts at 7 PM
