The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra presents “Six Seasons” featuring “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” by Astor Piazzolla and the “Winter” and “Spring” movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.” This tale of two cities marks the return of two popular SFCO soloists: SFCO concertmaster Robin Sharp and bandoneon virtuoso Coco Trivisonno.
Highly regarded as #1 on the â€˜classical music hit parade,’ Vivaldi’s marvelous depiction of the Venetian seasons has charmed audiences for nearly 300 years. Nuevo Tango master Astor Piazzolla set his sexy and scintillating seasons in his hometown of Buenos Aires. Moving the composition one step further, Piazzolla’s interpretation has been arranged for the bandoneon by Coco Trivisonno. SFCO’s “Six Seasons” marks the world premiere performance of Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” on bandoneon.
