    The Four Seasons
    Vadim Gluzman, violin

Music that evokes the seasons and tells a story. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons portrays a year filled with hope, flowering growth, flourishing abundance, and the quiet gathering of energy for tomorrow. In one of the most evocative pieces of pastoral music, you will hear everything from singing birds, murmuring streams and soft breezes, to barking dogs, drunken country dancers, and an intense thunderstorm.

Gluzman’s interpretation kept every moment fresh and aliveHerald-Tribune
