The Eight Seasons
Performed by Violinist Raul Munguia
& The Festival Chamber Players
Bicknell Family Center for the Arts
PSU Violin Professor, Dr. Raul Munguia, will be joined by the Festival Chamber Players. This concert contrasts Antonio Vivaldi's timeless Four Seasons with Astor Piazzolla's tango-inspired The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Combining Vivaldi & Piazzolla together like this underlines the meteorological and cultural differences between Mediterranean Europe and the warm heart of South America. To have them performed side by side creates a fascinating and interesting program of similarities and contrasts.
Reception to follow!
