The Seasons Project
Venice Baroque Orchestra

Roy Thomson Hall presents Virtuoso performances

Venice Baroque Orchestra is revered for its performances and award-winning recordings of music by Venice’s most illustrious musical son, Antonio Vivaldi. They’ll perform Vivaldi’s best-loved work, “The Four Seasons” together with Philip Glass’ Violin Concerto No. 2 for Violin & Orchestra “The American Four Seasons,” led by American violinist Robert McDuffie. The concerto was commissioned by McDuffie, along with five organizations, including the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. The results, premiered in 2009 with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, brought the house down and garnered rave reviews. This concert introduces two musical giants, separated only by time—Vivaldi and Glass—creating music which is hauntingly beautiful and magical.
