Perfect Octave: The Allusive Allure of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons
Monday, May 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10 – $30
In an anticipation of May’s concert performance, Andrew Jonathan Welch will discuss Vivaldi’s four violin concerti, commonly known as “The Four Seasons.” In addition to Vivaldi’s works, the pieces will be placed in a larger context of Italian works like Monteverdi’s Madrigals, as well as other European works including the Brandenburg concerti of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Each season in Perfect Octave, Welch will unpack a musical genre or piece through a lecture and a live performance, helping audiences to see music through its historical and social context and experience it with a deeper understanding.
Welch is a pianist, conductor and composer in Washington, DC. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland, where he was recognized with the Robert McCoy award in collaborative piano, and American University, where he earned the university’s prestigious Evelyn Swarthout Hayes Award.
