The Seasons of Vivaldi and Piazzola 2024-2025

Vivaldi’s Baroque-era panache and Piazzolla’s Argentinian tango join in a dialogue that spans the seasons, under the direction of violinist and conductor Rosanne Philippens.

Season Presenting Partner

Venice and Buenos Aires: together, Vivaldi’s Baroque-era panache and Piazzolla’s Argentinian tango join in a dialogue that spans the seasons. Vivaldi ingeniously showcased the orchestra’s array of sounds with his vividly descriptive music, while Piazzolla offers his reflections on the four seasons of life in Argentina, with nods here and there to his Venetian precursor.
