SALON 21: The Four Seasons

SALON 21: The Four Seasons

Friday September 19, 2014, 7 pm Tour, 7:30 pm Music Presentation

 

Antiono Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is one of the most iconic pieces of music ever created. It’s a work that seems to transcend cultural boundaries and can be found anywhere from the most serious of concert halls to the background of your local superstore. Join us as we explore four interpretations of Four Seasons through a completely different lens. Hear a jazz version of Spring, a string quartet version of Summer, and the complete remixes of Autumn and Winter. Enjoy this fresh take on one the most important works of the 18th century!

 

Come early to enjoy a custom docent tour as an extension of this program, themed to the evening's performance.

Gardiner Museum Presents: Springtime in Europe Gallery Tour: 7pm
Free with half-price Friday admission ($6 general, $4 seniors, $3 students)

Vivaldi’s life dates coincide with a European Spring- the beginning of the Enlightenment, with its emphasis on rational thought and scientific discovery.  One of those discoveries was the formula for the making of porcelain in Europe rather than importing it from Asia.   In Vienna, the city where Vivaldi spent the last years of his life, an exuberant baroque style of decoration celebrated the new age.
