Melbourne Chamber Orchestra Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
Saturday, 31 July at 3pm
Vivaldi would be totally astonished by the fame of his Four Seasons today.
As a priest working in an orphanage, most of his music was only heard by a small circle of people in Venice, and almost all of it was forgotten, lost or disregarded for nearly two centuries after his death.
The Four Seasons is not just well-known: it’s one of the most exciting, colourful and innovative works from the Baroque era. Each concerto is accompanied by a sonnet, and the hallmarks of each Italian season, from birdsong in Spring to pesky flies in Summer, are imagined in amazingly vivid musical form.
