Description
"Bristling with life" (Gramophone), Piazzolla's Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas pays tribute to the tango tradition of Buenos Aires (the adjective "porteñas" refers to its being a port city) and to Vivaldi's famous Four Seasons. The suite was written for Piazzolla's own quintet (bandoneon, violin, electric guitar, piano, and bass); this string orchestra arrangement was made by José Bragato, Piazzolla's colleague and collaborator. In Mikhail Bronner's homage to Tchaikovsky, orchestral pieces are set off against four duets for unusual mixes of instruments. Along with familiar pairs—flute and clarinet (“A Dialogue of Cuckoos”) and violin and cello (“What the North Wind Has Told”)—the author uses rare combinations in his duets, such as cello and clarinet (“The Snow-Covered Road”) and violin and flute (“Butterflies”). The last piece (“Christmas”) integrates all the solo instruments together with the orchestra.
