SCO: Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons

RESPIGHI                             Gli ucelli (The Birds)
TARRODI                               Birds of Paradise
VIVALDI                                  The Four Seasons (interspersed with traditional Nordic folk tunes)

Pekka Kuusisto                  violin / director
Ale Carr                                  cittern

Experience a fresh new perspective on Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons in a personal interpretation from inspirational Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto, set alongside a collection of rustic Nordic folk tunes from cittern virtuoso Ale Carr.

The cuckoos, doves and finches in Vivaldi’s sparkling violin concertos find avian friends in the hens and nightingales of Respighi’s brightly coloured depictions, and also in the exotic visitors depicted so brilliantly in the glittering orchestral showpiece by Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi.
