Marin Alsop, conductor Jonathan Carney, violin Vivaldi: The Four Seasons How do notes on a page communicate an idea? Why do we hear a thunderstorm, winter’s chill or a bird song when we listen to an orchestra play? Vivaldi set out to show Baroque critics that ”program music” had its place among serious compositions. Those ideas he captures in music have made The Four Seasons a concert hall staple and a popular cultural touchstone. It's fun. It's laid back. It's Off the Cuff. The story meets the score in our Centennial Off the Cuff series. Explore the backstory on classical music's greatest works and discover their secrets, scandals and twists. This unique series engages you in an entertaining and informative format, including a thrilling performance of the music.
