VIVALDI : IL DELIRIO FANTASTICO
— THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9TH 2021
Historically, composers used their imagination and cleverness to set dramatic events, wild environments, battles, village festivals, birdsongs, storms, animal sounds, and other natural and human sounds to music. Vivaldi passed his Four Seasons down to us with an old poem—a sonnet—that lists each element described in the music. This sonnet will be read to us by the fabulous Anne Dorval throughout the performance by the impressive solo violinist Julie Triquet.
