Vivaldi Le Quattro Stagioni (The Four Seasons) Op.8 No. 1-4
Vivaldi Gloria in D Major, RV 589

★★★★★ "Lee-Chen’s Four Seasons was outstanding, his movements bringing out the absolute best from the orchestra. A joyful, joyful night.” - The Sydney Morning Herald

Known as “The Red Priest” for his shocking mane of red hair, Antonio Vivaldi was a Baroque rock star bursting with energy.

In Gloria & The Four Seasons, the Brandenburg bring two of his masterpieces roaring to life as period instruments and theatrical shots of colour across the stage reveal the evocative lines and textures of this extraordinary music.

The imaginative vision and stirring passion of the enduring classics are powerfully awakened for a new generation. The orchestra’s concertmaster Shaun Lee-Chen reveals his stunning string sounds and astonishing command, a truly dynamic violinist heading to the peak of his powers. 

Uplifting and evocative, the concert features the Brandenburg Choir and the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra – full of virtuosity and brilliance.

With stage direction by creative genius, Yaron Lifschitz (Artistic Director, Circa), this concert experience will be triumphant and thrilling!
