A perennial favourite mixed with a new treasure

We are excited to present a program that mixes a perennial favourite of the orchestral repertoire with a new treasure, with Four Seasons Two Ways. There are two performances of this concert:
Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm in Sagebrush Theatre, and
Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 2:00 pm in The Nexus at First.

Four Seasons Two Ways pairs Vivaldi’s beloved Baroque masterpiece The Four Seasons with American Four Seasons by contemporary American composer Philip Glass.

Drawing from the rich tradition of music “painting” since the Middle Ages, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is known for its evocative depictions of the different seasons. Composed specifically to be a companion piece to Vivaldi’s set of concertos, Philip Glass’ American Four Seasons presents the audience with interesting musical comparisons, revealing how much classical music has changed in 300 years as well as how many similarities exist between musical periods 300 years apart.

Joining the KSO as the soloist for American Four Seasons is Guest Artist, violinist Yolanda Bruno. Praised for her total control of her instrument with infinite variety in the sound palette, she was recently named on CBC’s 30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians under 30. She has performed across North America and Europe, and her performances have been broadcast on CBC Radio 2, ICI Musique as well as on BBC Radio 3.

This concert also features two KSO musicians as soloists in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons: our Principal Second Violin Boris Ulanowicz, and violinist Rachel Kristenson.

Tickets for the Kamloops performance are $42, $39 Seniors, $10 Youth, $15 KSOundcheck members, and can be purchased from Kamloops Live! Box Office.
