Performer Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

'4 Elements / 4 Seasons' combines the dance suite Les Elements by Jean-Fery Rebel and Antonio Vivaldi's concerto cycle 'The Four Seasons' - two nearly contemporary works based on themes of nature - to create a fascinating choreographed concert. The result is nothing short of a new mode of performance practice that expands and enhances the audience's connection to the traditional concert setting. Violin soloist Midori Seiler and the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin are joined by Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola, a long time member of the dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests, who choreographed the orchestra and dances with them these early examples of program music. Clemens-Maria Nuszbaumer adapted the works for two small string orchestras that are placed directly across from each other on a large stage, each with a harpsichord in the continuo group.

This DVD combines the dance suite Les Elements by Rebel and Vivaldi's famous work The Four Seasons both based on themes of nature to create a fascinating choreographed concert. Violin soloist Midori Seiler and the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin perform these works as Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola dances the unique choreography.
