Concerto Copenhagen looks at Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons from a contemporary perspective, through the eyes of composer Karl Aage Rasmussen. He bravely deconstructs one of the best-known violin concertos before putting it all back together again, but this time with a serious twist. He unsettles rhythms and chords without adding new elements. The result is a thrilling experience which won’t fail to move you! The flawless sound of concertmaster Fredrik From has an infectious effect on the rest of the ensemble, achieving, as it does, a perfect balance of tradition and innovation.
