The underlying idea of 4 Seasons.. extended. is to bring to the stage a previously unheard, newly developed and multimedia-enhanced version of the Four Seasons by A. Vivaldi (1725).
Vivaldi added a presumably self-written sonnet to each of the four concertos, which describes in words what can be heard in the music – these sonnets form the basis for 4 Seasons.. extended., next to works by Brahms, Schubert and Piazolla.
4 Seasons… extended is funded through the Neustart Kultur Scholarship by the DMR.
