Vivaldi/Piazzolla The Four Seasons/The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
Mozart Symphony No. 39
Baroque meets tango in this pairing of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. It’s a fascinating juxtaposition, hearing Vivaldi’s silvery, singing strings followed by Piazzolla’s dramatic dance rhythms—and a brilliant showcase for Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim, hailed for his “scintillating, silken tone” (New York Classical Review). Topped by Mozart’s grand Symphony No. 39, this is a concert to remember.
