Event Info

The National Chamber Ensemble will present a virtual performance of Vivaldi’s masterpiece The Four Seasons on May 29, 2021.The 2020-21 NCE season has been keeping the audience and artists safe as well as connected. Each concert is paired with a live virtual event/conversation with the artists.

(Taped May 22, the concert links will go out on May 29 and will allow our audience 12 days to enjoy the concert at their convenience, the audience will also receive an invitation to a live virtual reception and conversation with the artists on Sunday, June 6 at 4 p.m.)

The presentation of Vivaldi’s “The Extraordinary Four Seasons” based on a concept by renowned violinist Daniel Heifetz will include a reading of the sonnets as well as a multimedia presentation accompanying the performance that includes paintings, moving images, and Vivaldi’s own words written into the music plus the ensemble’s own humorous demonstration linking Vivaldi’s words, story and music.

JaLynn Prince, American humanitarian, photographer, businesswoman and the president and founder of the Madison House Foundation will read the sonnets accompanying the “Seasons”. The Ensemble’s Artistic Director Leonid Sushansky, hailed “a musical storyteller” by The Washington Post, will perform the violin solo with a sextet that includes two violins, viola, cello, double bass, and harpsichord.

NCE artists joining artistic director/violinist Leo Sushansky for this performance are Najin Kim (violin) Jorge Orozco (violin) Uri Wassertzug (viola), Vasily Popov (cello), Natasha Dukan (harpsichord), Chris Chlumsky (double bass)

“Mr Heifetz really opened my eyes, ears and imagination to the fascinating story embedded in the music. He really translated the music in such a way that made you understand the music deeper. That is also the goal of the National Chamber Ensemble. We felt the need continue that wonderful and exciting tradition while adding some of our own touches.” — Leo Sushansky

“The Four Seasons” is one of Antonio Vivaldi’s most famous works. Composed during the Baroque period and published in 1725, each concerto is accompanied by sonnets, written, as most believe, by Vivaldi himself. The sonnets provide a narrative for the music, offering a more complete picture of each season as the composition weaves its way through spring, summer, fall, and winter.

“One of the most original and entertaining performances of the Four Seasons I have ever seen or heard…The audience was thrilled and in awe, and they reciprocated with spontaneous laughter and applause throughout the entire performance, one which inspired a standing ovation before its final notes sounded.”
