Many recordings lately have featured a combination of well-known and also unknown pieces. In this new CD, we get to listen to the following:
Four World Seasons, premiere recording
The Four Seasons
As performed by Tasmin Little (violin & conductor), with the BBC Symphony Orchestra
Capturing the sound of the BBC SYmphony’s strings, Tasmin Little is both the soloist and conductor in this unique combination:
Vivaldi’s ever-popular ‘Four Seasons’ meets Roxanna Panufnik’s Four World Seasons, the premiere recording of a set of highly inspirational pieces.
As a complete cycle, ‘The Four Seasons’ offers a set of imaginative, enticing, and wonderfully contrasted pieces, with ample chance for the violin soloist to display technique, sensitivity, and color.
These are qualities that the British composer Roxanna Panufnik also sought for her own Seasons tribute, Four World Seasons, written for the violinist. Three of the pieces are dedicated to her, while the fourth, ‘Autumn in Albania’, is dedicated to the memory of Panufnik’s father, the Polish composer Sir Andrzej Panufnik.
