Musical Program:

Vivaldi, The Four Seasons 
 with Carlo Aonzo, guest mandolinist
Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 1, Op. 13 (Winter Daydreams)

"The DSO teams up with one of the world’s top mandolin virtuosi for a thrilling new take on Vivaldi’s well-known gem. That Baroque contemplation of the cycle of the seasons is complemented by Tchaikovsky’s first symphony, a folk music-flavored journey through a winter landscape."

"With this project, Carlo Aonzo expresses all the potentialities of the mandolin, playing the virtuosic and impressionistic Vivaldi of the Four Seasons, demonstrating how the four double strings of the mandolin can distinctly express the adagios while giving rhythmic power and virtuosity to the fast tempos."
