About the Event

In this performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons at St. Stephen's, listen to the gentle winds and violent thunderstorms, bird voices and the barking of a dog, the hunting and a farmer's dance that Vivalid draws on the scores! Vivaldi knew like no other how to create musical images that stimulate the imagination and captivate the audience.

Where would it be more fitting to perform Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons' — a parable of living and dying — than in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral, where funeral services were also held after the composer's death in 1741? Vivaldi came to Vienna impoverished in 1740, hoping to enter the service of the emperor. He died only ten months later and was therefore buried in Vienna.

J. S. Bach's Violin Concerto in E major completes the programme, for which the composer took Vivaldi's concertos as his model. It therefore contains echoes of Vivaldi on the one hand, and Bach's unmistakable musical spirit with virtuoso solos on the other. The dialogue between the strings and the soloist creates an entertaining and airy concert experience that wonderfully rounds off Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
