The Seasons Project
Robert McDuffie, violin soloist & leader
with
The Venice Baroque Orchestra
performing
Concerto No. 2 for Violin & Orchestra
"The American Four Seasons" by Philip Glass
and
"The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi

Strathmore presents the Washington premiere of “The American Four Seasons” by Philip Glass, a piece The Guardian describes as “Baroque in scale, and slyly using a synthesizer as continuo, it interweaves unaccompanied solos with formal movements of great melodic beauty.” The new work is complemented on the program by its famous counterpart--Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons.”
