Antonio Vivaldi: Extracts from the concerto cycle I quattro stagioni [The Four Seasons]

What are the sounds of nature in the spring, in the summer, in the autumn and in the winter? Can you describe these sounds on musical instruments? In this musical salon for children, Antonio Vivaldi’s celebrated cycle of concerts known as The Four Seasons takes the listener through the entire year. Siina Hirvonen and members of the Turku Philharmonic guide listeners to the sounds of nature appearing in Vivaldi’s music: birdsong, thunder, wind and much more. Children and adults alike are welcome to enjoy this whirlwind tour of all four seasons in just one day.

The length of the concert is about 45 min. No intermission.
Tickets 22.50 € | 22.50 € | 10.50 €
