The Four Seasons. You have heard it all before, but not like this. This December, Momentum Ensemble will embark on a voyage through music and time, exploring some of history’s most familiar melodies, and discovering the impact they made upon the composers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
Under the baton of Ariel Zuckermann, Momentum Ensemble will perform Max Richter’s adaptation of Vivaldi’s Summer Violin Concerto, featuring soloist Miki Tsunoda; and Hindemith’s Kammermusik No.1. These two works bear a heavy influence from the past, yet both composers have cleverly twisted the traditional into something sensationally modern.
Returning to the roots of classical music itself, Momentum Ensemble will bring the concert to a close with Joseph Haydn’s Drum Roll symphony – a perfect ending to an uplifting evening of music.
