Music Millennium

The Spanish violinist Lina Tur Bonet loves big challenges: Bach, Biber, Corelli, Vivaldi. She has already dedicated two albums to the "prete rosso", which have enraptured audiences and critics alike: "devil's violinist", "rock star attitude", "Jimi Hendrix of the baroque violin" are just some of the descriptions one could read about her. With this recording, she ascends to the "Vivaldi Olympus" and dedicates herself to the "Four Seasons". Tur Bonet also succeeds in living up to her reputation here: She elicits new facets from the much-performed work, offers surprisingly new listening impressions and delivers an expressive, emotionally charged interpretation. The violinist contrasts Vivaldi with Astor Piazzolla's "Four Seasons". Although this is not a new idea, Tur Bonet is also going her own way here: she plays Piazzolla's work in the original quartet instrumentation and has brought highly virtuoso Argentinian tango specialists to her side. The result is tango in it's purest form: sweet and rough, sad and wild, rhythmic and free.
