The Four Seasons: Piazzolla’s version

When you think of the four seasons, Vivaldi's colourful Baroque evergreen immediately springs to mind. Equally ingenious, however, is Astor Piazzolla's evocation, in which jazz, tango and classical merge into an almost sensory trip through the seasons. That same inexhaustible imaginative power - with sparkling melodies and virtuoso dialogue - can also be heard in Shostakovich's Second Piano Trio. Although in this the tone is more mournful. The great Russian master wrote the work as a moving farewell to his recently dead best friend Ivan Sollertinsky.

Your ticket also gives you free admission to the lecture-performance on 18 January.
