Orchestra Victoria – The Eight Seasons

Join the musicians of Orchestra Victoria as they explore two extraordinary interpretations of nature’s beauty and the seasons that shape our world.

Play-directed by one of Australia’s most remarkable violinists, Sulki Yu (Concertmaster), The Eight Seasons intertwines two works of unparalleled charisma, journeying audiences throughout the world and around the sun. Featuring music’s most iconic violin solos in the stunning acoustic of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, this concert offers a captivating night out for all.

The night opens with Spring from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, with the composer’s extraordinary Summer, Autumn, and Winter woven to follow. Vivaldi’s creations of timeless, cinematic opulence are not only among the most celebrated works of all time but have inspired generations of programmatic output since their conception. From the music’s vivid storytelling to its boundless and deliberate energy, The Four Seasons invites audiences on a transcendental voyage through both time and place.

Woven throughout Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons is Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, a suite enveloped by the colour, richness, and intense spirit of Argentine geography – and who better to bring this to life than the tango-inspired Argentine composer himself? Written in 1969 and rearranged throughout history for a variety of instruments, Piazzolla’s works dance through this concert, offering spice, character, and Piazzolla’s unique sense of improvisatory playfulness.

Across one remarkable program, The Eight Seasons gets you up close and personal with the unique textures, narratives, and emotions of this enchanting repertoire.
