The Eight Seasons
The concept of “The Eight Seasons” has been done many times all over the world as well as a few times in South Africa.
It is a compilation of Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons Concertos (Le Quattro Stagioni) for Violin & String Orchestra, together with Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires (Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas).
All of those would be normally played with a Solo Violin & String orchestra which is the original intention of Vivaldi but not of Piazzolla. Piazzolla’s original was for his Tango Quinteto.
In this production we’d have 2 well known celebrated bands from Cape Town sharing the stage and giving us “The Eight Seasons”.
In this case we would have the original Piazzolla’s Four Seasons version for a Tango Quartet, combined with an arrangement of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons for a Trio of Violin, Accordion and Bass Guitar.

English
Vivaldi enthusiasts are urged not to miss this performance of one of the world`s all-time memorable and famous classical pieces, by the best in local talent. The entire 4 concertos are performed. The original work did not have music scores for accordion and bass, but audiences will be surprised by this tremendously refreshing new transformation.

German
Die vier Jahreszeiten (Italienisch Le quattro stagioni) heißt das wohl bekannteste Werk Antonio Vivaldis. Es handelt sich um vier Violinkonzerte mit außermusikalischen Programmen; jedes Konzert porträtiert eine Jahreszeit. Dazu ist den einzelnen Konzerten jeweils ein – vermutlich von Vivaldi selbst geschriebenes – Sonett vorangestellt; fortlaufende Buchstaben vor den einzelnen Zeilen und an den entsprechenden Stellen in der Partitur ordnen die verbale Beschreibung der Musik zu.

Afrikaans
Vivaldi se Vier Seisoene is `n gewilde, immergroen werk in die standard-klassieke repertorium. Die klassieke aanslag bly steeds die kenmerkende styl van die musiek, alhoewel die uitstaande musikante die Vier Seisoene met unieke instrumentasie van akkordion en basskitaar aanvul.
