The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, is one of the most famous and frequently performed works of classical music. The Italian master wittily and gracefully captured in music the way his contemporaries saw the world and nature. The Vivaldi cycle is both a philosophical reflection, and a magnificent illustrated "calendar", and a "sightseeing tour" of the regions of Italy.
All guests will be invited to enjoy a welcome drink before the show.
This concert can be called mystical because the ensemble members always perform in masks. Remaining incognito, the musicians do not distract the audience with their individuality, thereby allowing them to completely immerse themselves in her majesty's music.
*Important! Max Richter is not taking part in the concert.
