Inês Vaz and Pedro Santos are two excellent accordionists, true virtuosos of the instrument.
The two musicians propose a revisit to one of the composer’s most iconic and well-known works from the Baroque era, in a transcription performed by both, for two accordions. a work as poetic and rich as all the melodies that compose it.
Consisting of 4 concertos (each with three movements), originally composed for violin and orchestra, illustrative of each season of the year, accompanied and described by the respective sonnet.
As it is a deeply contemplative work of nature and the 4 seasons of the year, it is intended that the concert be presented as a whole, without pauses, so that the audience has the opportunity to fully engage in this contemplative moment.
With this transcription and reduction, it is obviously not intended to equal and approximate the sound of an orchestra, but rather to listen and enjoy the richness, sonority and virtuosity that results from the combination of these two instruments, certainly, with due distance and inherent differences, compared to all versions of a work as widely played and known as this one.
