Arkansas Symphony - The 8 Seasons

01/30/2014, 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM


The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra returns this season with a performance of impressive pieces from their I.N.C. Series (Intimate Neighborhood Concert Series), its new chamber orchestra series launched a year ago to engage, inspire, connect, and advance Arkansas through the power of music. This program will feature the ASO strings and soloists performing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, an audience favorite, combined with the Latin tangos of the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Argentinian composer Ástor Piazzolla. “Always an audience favorite, Vivaldi’s “Seasons” is fiery, virtuosic, and full of beauty. Pairing Vivaldi’s Italian sensibilities with the sultry, romantic, and explosive “Seasons” of Piazzolla transports the listener to the colorful and passionate worlds of two composers centuries apart.”
