Vivaldi The Four Seasons
Piazzolla arr. Leonid Desyatnikov The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Renowned virtuoso Daniel Rowland joins són for 8 Seasons: a dialogue between Piazzolla and Vivaldi’sFour Seasons, fusing intoxicating colours from two very different continents, centuries and musical traditions – breathtakingly juxtaposed and brought to life by one of Europe’s most charismatic musicians. 8 Seasons continues the achievements of són’s Unwrapped series: breaking down barriers, engaging audiences, and presenting familiar works in a fresh light. The idea behind it first came from Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, who engaged composer Leonid Desyatnikov to combine the works, making ‘Piazzolla speak directly to Vivaldi, and in such a way also Vivaldi to Piazzolla, using quotations of Vivaldi to build bridges between these two different geniuses.’
