This week’s Tuesday Masterwork with The Sarasota Orchestra features an encore broadcast of a chamber version of Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” with four different soloists from the orchestra!
The Four Seasons
“The Four Seasons” is made up of four violin concertos that give a musical description for each season. Vivaldi published the music with accompanying poems that went along with what he was trying to evoke. “The Four Seasons” is Vivaldi’s most recognizable work and provides one of the earliest examples of what is now considered to be program music, or, music with a narrative.
