All human life (and death) is here, with composers shaking hands across the centuries.
Mahler looks back 100 years to turn Schubert’s Death and the Maiden into a powerful orchestral piece. And Vivaldi’s Four Seasons from the 1700s travels two hundred years into the future to dance a tango with Piazolla’s version.
About Four Seasons
Where have I heard it before?
The Four Seasons has been used in many films and television programmes – most recently ‘Summer’ from the end of the romantic drama Portrait of a Lady on Fire and (by contrast!) ‘Winter’ is played during the final fight scene in John Wick 3.
