VIVALDI PHENOMENON

In this glorious performance, Martynas Levickis puts his own spin on Vivaldi’s best-known work The Four Seasons, plus a selection of pieces from the Italian composer’s rich canon. Created and premiered in 2015, Vivaldi Phenomenon features Martynas as soloist, directing his ensemble Mikroorkèstra and Belgian guitarist Chris Rubens. These baroque masterpieces are transformed by the accordion, presenting the ever-popular works with a fresh energy, yet remaining true to the virtuoso splendour of the original.
