FROM BERLIN
TO BUENOS AIRES

SUNABACKA - PIAZZOLLA - MENDELSSOHN

A masterful tribute to Martin Luther, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 invokes the spirits of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. Soloist-in-residence Blake Pouliot brings the intoxicating rhythms of Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires to life with dazzling virtuosity.

Rich in chorales and rooted in the belief that all the faithful can celebrate the Christian God, the Protestant musical tradition inspired many musicians. Felix Mendelssohn transposed his devotion into a visionary work of complex counterpoint. With its vibrant energy, Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires gives an occasional nod to Vivaldi.
