Sarah Chang Plays Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at StrathmoreViolinist Sarah Change will perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with the National Philharmonic May 17 at 8 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda.
Violinist Sarah Chang, recognized worldwide as one of classical music’s most captivating and gifted performers, plays Vivaldi’s most popular work, The Four Seasons, a set of four short violin concertos written around 1723. The concertos each depict a season and are filled with dazzling effects mimicking natural phenomena such as storms, wind, thunder and rain, as well as bird calls. Ms. Chang’s 2007 CD of the Seasons attracted international commendation, with BBC Music Magazine stating, “She has never made a finer recording.” Strauss wrote the adagio for strings, Metamorphosen, during the closing days of World War II as an elegy for the destruction of Munich, including the historic National Theatre opera house.
This performance will also be held May 18 at 3 p.m.
