North and South; Baroque and Tango – Soloist/Director Daniel Rowland with the Ulster Orchestra

On Thursday 17th December, Daniel Rowland directs the Ulster Orchestra and is the soloist for what promises to be a fascinating and inspiring performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons interleaved with Piazzola’s  The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

To quote Tim Homfray’s review of Rowland’s recording of both sets of seasons, published in the Strad on the CD’s release in 2011:

“Piazzolla’s Four Seasons, originally written for a small band with the composer himself paying bandoneon and here performed in one of a number of subsequent arrangements for string ensemble, consists of four portraits of Buenos Aires, urban counterparts to Vivaldi’s portraits of rural life. Rowland and his players tackle them in a suitable frenzy of heat and colour, the quotations from Vivaldi peeking cheekily out from the potent mix of vibrant rhythms, complete with percussion, and the welter of glissandos and ponticello effects.”

Rowland really looks forward to performing this repertoire with the Ulster Orchestra in December!
