Imaginarium Ensemble

Lucie Skeaping presents highlights of a concert by the Imaginarium Ensemble from the 2013 Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music. Featuring performances of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, with director Enrico Onofri as soloist, interspersed with the sonnets on which these works are based. It's not known whether Vivaldi himself wrote the sonnets, but the music he wrote reflects each season's essence: birdsong in spring, a stormy summer, harvest revelries and winter's chill. The poems are read by our very own Catherine Bott.
