4. „THE FOUR SEASONS”

Performers

Ensemble „Cantica Sacra”: Izabela Szlachta-Dowgiałło – violin, Paulina Tkaczyk – harpsichord

Programme

A. Vivaldi

Who does not know Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons? Today it is the most popular and widely acclaimed Vivaldi's composition and a truly timeless work. The series of four concerts, adored in any form, will this time be presented in an innovative version for two instruments: the solo violin and harpsichord in the role of an orchestra. The music, which is the essence of the Italian baroque, charms the listener with a wide spectrum of tones, full of unusually skilled processions and emotions. It delights not only with exceptional virtuosity, but also with the captivating craftsmanship of melodic lines and unusual means of expression. Vivaldi appears as a perfect „natural painter”, who plays with colours and creates the terminology of programme music.
