Star violinist Arabella Steinbacher presents Antonio Vivaldi's world-famous Four Seasons alongside Astor Piazzolla's Cuatro estaciones portenas, creating a lively combination of baroque and tango. The enormous popularity of Vivaldi's Four Seasons tends to make us forget the original and ground-breaking nature of these violin concertos. Coupling them with Piazzolla's tango-inspired Four Seasons of Buenos Aires makes both pieces sound fresher than ever before, thanks to Steinbacher's personal engagement with the repertoire and the inspired accompaniment of the Munchener Kammerorchester. Piazzolla's music is performed here in a new arrangement for violin and string orchestra by Peter von Wienhardt, whose Strauss song arrangements on Steinbacher's previous album Aber der Richtige ... (2018) were extensively praised by the press. Arabella Steinbacher, a multiple award-winner with an extensive PENTATONE discography, is accompanied by the players of the Munchener Kammerorchester, who make their PENTATONE debut.
