Event description

Description

Oxford Alternative Orchestra is proud to present a dynamic dialogue of artists across space and time riffing on the theme of the Four Seasons. Four different artistic styles from radically different traditions and parts of the world make up this event.

Joining Oxford Alternative Orchestra all the way from Russia, baroque specialist Emma Kabanova will perform the solo in Vivaldi's acclaimed Four Seasons. Oxford third-year and former leader of the prestigious Oxford University Orchestra, Elizabeth Nurse, will perform the virtuosic Argentinian response to Vivaldi's masterpiece: Astor Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Next, witness the premiere of The Finnish Seasons, a work by rising star Kristian Kivelä, commissioned just for this occasion. Finally, three spoken-work poets--Alex Coccia, Mayanka Mukherji, and René Verma--respond to the seasons in a lively medium which too rarely makes its way into the classical concert hall.
