Vivaldi Four Seasons
Kevin Rhodes, Conductor/Soloist: Caroline Goulding, Violin
Symphony No. 7, Op. 92, A major
The Four Seasons, Op. 8, No. 1-4
Tonight, two great works are served up in four movements each, one attempting to chronical Nature and the other “moved by pure patriotism,” according to Beethoven himself.
- Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, the “Apotheosis of the Dance,” described as a “flood tide of inspired invention” was regarded by the composer himself as "one of my best works”
- Probably the most popular piece of classical music ever written, The Four Seasons, returns to Symphony Hall, played by SSO’s favorite wunderkind, Caroline Goulding
