Vivaldi’s evocative masterpiece interwoven with works from some of the world’s contemporary composers.
The Four Seasons has captivated audiences and music-makers the world over, and Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra is no exception.
In our first mainstage concert for the year, we’ve reimagined The Four Seasons, intertwining Vivaldi, Max Richter (from his hit post-minimalist album, Vivaldi Recomposed), Astor Piazzolla (with a Buenos Aires tango version of "Spring"), as well as a north American season written by American fiddler, Mark O’Conner.
To evoke the intensity of Winter will be the sublime piece, Tibetan Winter, by Roxanna Panufnik, as well as First Snow, from Finnish composer, Jaako Kuusisto.
Four Seasons Reimagined will uplift, delight, and celebrate the talent of Camerata’s Artistic Associates in solo roles.
A vivid and colourful season opener, not to be missed!
