RESPIGHI Gli ucelli (The Birds) TARRODI Birds of Paradise VIVALDI The Four Seasons Interspersed with traditional Nordic folk tunes played by Pekka Kuusisto and Ale Carr
Pekka Kuusisto violin / director Ale Carr cittern Ruby Hughes soprano
Experience a fresh new perspective on Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons in a personal interpretation from inspirational Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto, set alongside a collection of rustic Nordic folk tunes from cittern virtuoso Ale Carr.
The cuckoos, doves and finches in Vivaldi’s sparkling violin concertos find avian friends in the hens and nightingales of Respighi’s brightly coloured depictions, and also in the exotic visitors depicted so brilliantly in the glittering orchestral showpiece by Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi.
