Four South American Seasons
The new sensation among international conductors, Venezuela’s Diego Matheuz, here brings us a celebration of Latin American music.
The passion, tunefulness and earthy spirit of this music is encapsulated in the tango, of which composer Astor Piazzolla is recognized as the master. His masterpiece, Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, is the Latin equivalent of Vivaldi’s famous work, and for it Matheuz will be joined by sensational young Australian violinist, Kristian Winther. The concert culminates in a blaze of rhythmic energy with Moncayo’s jubilant Huapango.
