Details

MOSL’s second concert of the season highlights The Four Seasons of Buenos Aries with violin soloist Hannah Frey. Piazzolla single-handedly took the tango, an earthy, sensual, often disreputable folk music that he enjoyed as a child, and elevated it into a sophisticated form of high art. The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires is an extraordinarily interesting work. In its final shape, it takes a tango-inspired work by Piazzolla and combines it with elements easily recognizable from Vivaldi’s model. Not only does it share with Vivaldi the general concept of depicting four seasons in music; it also presents a solo violin featured within an orchestral texture in highly virtuosic style.

Also on the program Chabrier Habanera and Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo.

Tickets may be purchased at the door.
