THE FOUR SEASONS

Brace against a biting Italian winter and feel the eruption of a summer storm in this inventive re-imagining of The Four Seasons.

Inspired by four sonnets depicting rustic scenes from the Italian countryside, The Four Seasons challenges musicians to create striking musical impressions. The identity of the sonnets’ author is lost. The music the words inspired however is synonymous with The Red Priest – Antonio Vivaldi.

Georg Philipp Telemann’s Water Music is an imaginative orchestral suite in ten vibrant movements. This programmatic work evokes vivid nautical images from a remote mythological past of wrathful sea gods, mischievous water nymphs and the rulers of the winds.
