The Four Seasons

Simone Porter, violin soloist

PROGRAM

VIVALDI: The Four Seasons

PIAZZOLA: The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Violinist Simone Porter is the virtuoso soloist in Vivaldi’s dazzlingly imaginative evocation of the sights, sounds and sensations of the Italian seasons. The Four Seasons violin concertos are so richly detailed you can feel the sirocco of summer, hear the dancing villagers of Autumn and slip on the ice of a Venetian winter. The master of the New Tango, Ástor Piazzolla, brought the wild dance of Buenos Aires into the concert hall. There’s an apt nod to Vivaldi in Leonid Desyatnikov’s sensational string arrangements of the Estaciones Porteñas, but they have an atmosphere that’s unique to Buenos Aires – fiercely sensual in summer, hazy and melancholic in winter, all moving to the heartbeat of the tango. Vivaldi’s seasons enfold Piazzolla’s in this dance around the year.

The Downton Abbey Era

Janet Sung, violin soloist

PROGRAM ELGAR: Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1

JOHN LUNN: Downton Abbey Suite

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Lark Ascending

RAVEL: Tzigane

ELGAR: Enigma Variations

You are invited to an evening of all things quintessentially “British”— from the music of Downton Abbey in anticipation of the new movie, to the heavenly soaring of Vaughn Williams’ poetic music, to Sir Edward Elgar’s music of Edwardian grace and artistry. 

According to The Guardian, Vaughn Williams’ Lark Ascending “…starts with the darkest, richest sounds a violin can make, then rises to an airy lightness, and it has become far and away Britain’s most popular piece of classical music.” Composed over 100 years ago, on the eve of WWI, this important work carries both a poignancy and beauty that are as powerful as ever. While conjuring images of bucolic, pastural landscapes and the impossible beauty of the skylark’s song, you’ll hear a sense of loss, too, of this difficult time in Britain’s history.

Elgar composed his much-loved Enigma Variations to depict “friends pictured within,” but the so-called enigma is an unplayed theme that he often hinted at but never revealed.  The exquisite “Nimrod” Variation, performed for the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, is also heard at the end of the 2017 film Dunkirk

Students who are preparing for Senior Regional Orchestra auditions will play mock auditions.  Selected students will perform pieces learned over the summer. Click here for class schedule, including performance selections and order.

" I have been a fan of Glass since my teens. In fact, his music drama "The Photographer" was the first live event I attended without an adult, and I have always associated his music with coming of age” says Dinnerstein. “There are almost no concertos written for piano and strings since Bach's time. Both Glass and I have a strong interest in Bach and how his music impacts us today. The pairing of the Bach concerto with his own composition will create myriad strands of connectivity enabling the listener to create bridges between the old and new."
