Redlands Symphony to perform in Fallbrook

FALLBROOK – A symphony in rural Fallbrook? Fallbrook Music Society is always evolving and presenting new and exciting programming to the area, and the concert Sunday, April 7, will be no exception.

After a 10-year hiatus, the Redlands Symphony will be back in Fallbrook by popular demand, presenting a performance that pairs Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" with Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires."

"We look forward to sharing this experience with our community to spark more excitement about classical music," Bob Freaney, president of Fallbrook Music Society, said. "This concert will be the grand finale of our 47th season as these talented classical musicians play beloved favorite pieces in a casual atmosphere that everyone can, and will, enjoy."

Antonio Vivaldi's" The Four Seasons" was completed in 1720 and stands as one of the most celebrated and recognizable works in the baroque repertoire. This collection of four violin concertos, each representing a different season of the year, showcases Vivaldi's innovative approach to both musical form and programmatic expression.

Vivaldi's gift for melody, his vivid imagination, and his ability to convey the characteristics of each season make "The Four Seasons" a timeless and enchanting musical journey.

Astor Piazzolla's "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires" is a testament to his innovative spirit and his desire to push the boundaries of traditional genres. By fusing the passionate rhythms of tango with the sophistication of classical music, Piazzolla created a work that transcends cultural boundaries.

The "Four Seasons of Buenos Aires" takes listeners on a thrilling journey as they experience the soul and culture of Buenos Aires in a vibrant and emotional dialogue between tradition and innovation.
