A TIMELESS CLASSIC
Undoubtedly the finest example of the baroque tradition and the most popular of Vivaldi's 350 concertos, a recital of his enchanting and magnificent Four Seasons is an essential experience for any fan of classical music, be it your first time or your fiftieth. Oregon Symphony provide just that, with an exquisite rendition of this masterpiece.
These four connected violin concerti take you on a journey that celebrates and evokes the best of the seasons. Textured and passionate, adventure through the chattering birds of spring as they soar over flower-strewn meadows full of newborn lambs, the gathering tremors of a thunderous summer storm that lead to a joyous dance of a fall harvest and end in the icy snows of a chilly winter.
Also featuring during this program will be The Carmen Suite by Rodion Shchedrin, the magnificent score for the 1967 ballet of the same name by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso!
