Each day that Vivaldi walked the streets or traversed the canals of Venice, a key port and global trade centre, it brought him into contact with a flurry of sounds, smells, languages and thought that were like no other in Europe.

From the Ottoman Empire and the vast depths of Arabic intellectual and cultural life, through to North Africa and what would become India, Venice was a community where design, food, religion and the arts didn’t just mingle, they absorbed and integrated.

Vivaldi’s much-loved bastion of western music, The Four Seasons, could only have emerged from this melting pot.

Interspersing Vivaldi’s masterpiece with music from the masters of the oud and riq, Joseph and James Tawadros, will provide a living bridge of composition and performance that promises to excite and illuminate.
