Australian Brandenburg Orchestra presents Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra brings a baroque masterpiece, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, to life this May.

WHAT: Award winning British composer Max Richter has taken a baroque classic – Vivaldi’s Four Seasons – and recomposed it for orchestra and synthesiser.

The result is an extraordinary creation; a worldwide phenomenon that proves what Brandenburg audiences already know: great music is constantly revealing itself to us and can flourish under radically different interpretations, whilst retaining its indestructible genius. Swapping his harpsichord for an Apple Mac, Paul and guest concertmaster Brendan Joyce (solo violin) celebrate Richter’s own leap of faith with the Australian premiere of this audacious and wonderful work.

Framed by more traditional performances of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.3 and a concerto from Vivaldi’s grand L’estro armonico, is a C.P.E. Bach concerto for flute re imagined for the soprano saxophone. This soaring work is perfectly suited to the lyrical gifts of Australian soloist Christina Leonard, who so endeared herself to Brandenburg audiences in last year’s Noël! Noël! concerts.

WHO:  Australian Brandenburg Orchestra featuring. Brendan Joyce (Australia) baroque violin, Paul Dyer (Australia) Synthesiser, Christina Leonard (Australia) soprano saxophone.
