Baroque violinist Rachell Ellen Wong, Grand Prize winner of the inaugural J.S. Bach Competition, returns to the MSO to lead one of the most iconic treasures in all of the Baroque repertoire: Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Vivaldi provided vivid poems to accompany each of these seasonal concertos — in spring, “the goatherd sleeps next to his trusty dog” as birds sing; summer features goldfinches, pines, and a gathering storm; peasants dance and drink in autumn, before a grand hunt begins; and finally winter turns from icy winds to the contentment of resting fireside.
