About the Event

Be a part of the great tradition of classical music in Dresden. The concert series, Dresdner Residenz Konzerte, offers delightful and diverse performances in the elegant atmosphere of the Zwinger Palace in Dresden.
Vivaldi's The Four Seasons is among the most famous works in the history of music. Experience the changing seasons with the Dresdner Residenz Orchestra, an unforgettable journey from soft and resonant to powerfully thundering orchestral sounds, accompanying the virtuosic soloists.
The Four Seasons is a group of four violin concertos written by Italian Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi in 1721. Each concerto represents the musical expression of a season of the year — probably the sounds Vivaldi experienced in the countryside of Mantua. Each concerto is paired with a sonnet‐form text, authorship of which is often ascribed to Vivaldi also, making 'The Four Seasons' one of the earliest examples of program music.

About the Venue
The Dresdner Zwinger is a Baroque palace in Dresden, Germany. Designed by court architect Matthäus Daniel Pöppelmann, the Zwinger was the perfect venue for an orangery, festival arena and exhibition gallery for the princely court. The location was originally part of the city's fortress, the wall of which is still perfectly preserved. The Zwinger is now a famous complex of museums that includes the Old Masters Gallery, the Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments, and the Dresden Porcelain Collection. The Dresdner Zwinger also hosts marvellous classical concerts, featuring international artists and conductors.

    At the beginning I was disappointed due that the violinist in the advertisement was not going to perform. They substitute him with a Korean lady, she is excellent!! We enjoy the performance! All the players were young but they give their soul when playing. The cello player was very good too.
