What a charming idea to pair Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with Astor Piazzolla’s own Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas, here in the popular arrangement for solo violin and string orchestra by Leonid Desyatnikov of four pieces which were originally separate. To each piece the arranger cleverly added colourful snippets of Vivaldi, not however, as would be expected, from the corresponding season because, as everyone knows, these are inverted in Southern Hemisphere Argentina. So don’t go looking for quotes of Vivaldi’s L’estate in Piazzolla’s Verano – it’s rather in his Invierno that you will find them.
