Ages 6 and up
Leos Janacek | Suite for Strings
Astor Piazzolla | The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires
Antonio Vivaldi | The Four Seasons
We cannot wait to hear the Vivaldi Four Seasons performed by London-based virtuoso Alexander (Sasha) Sitkovetsky, paired with Astor Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires in this all-strings program. Janacek’s Suite for strings, just as soulful as compatriot Antonin Dvorak, is rarely heard outside the Czech Republic and deserves a wider audience.
Sasha Sitkovetsky and I first worked together in Monterey in 2009 performing Paganini Violin Concerto No. 1, then performed Beethoven together in 2012 and Barber in 2015 with the WCO. When invited to play Vivaldi this season, Sasha, known for his gusto and stamina, immediately suggested the pairing with Piazzolla’s iconic The Four Seasons.
