Tasmin Little plays Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Revolving around the use of numbers and the production of the most thrilling ambience, this concert features two concertos for two violins. The central movement of the Bach contains some of the most sublime music ever written. Additionally, Arvo Pärt’s atmospheric set of variations, Fratres, based on a six-bar theme, was written for three parts – the instrumentation not originally specified: although we will hear it in the composer’s 1992 ‘authorized version’ for violin (played by Tasmin), strings and percussion. And we end with Vivaldi’s timeless evocation of the passing year – four three-movement violin concertos transporting us from the burgeoning warmth of spring to the “icy snow [and] harsh breath” of winter.
