The Sound of Climate Change: A performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons on 19 October
Brussels Muzieque and Full Circle present an evening of profound musical resonance in The Sound of Climate Change on 19 October.
The concert-talk event stages a performance of the timeless strains of Vivaldi's Four Seasons interwoven with a thought-provoking discourse on climate change.
Each of the four seasons will be brought to life by a distinct virtuoso soloist from Brussels' major orchestras, alternating their roles within the string septet ensemble: ‘Spring’ by Sylvia Huang (concertmaster at Brussels' opera La Monnaie/De Munt), ‘Autumn’ by Nadja Nevolovitsch (leader of the 1st violins at Brussels Philharmonic), ‘Winter’ by Sarah Oates (concertmaster at Ballet Amsterdam, based in Belgium), and ‘Summer’ by Misako Akama (concertmaster at Belgian National Orchestra).
This captivating ensemble will be complemented by the artistry of Monika Mlynarczyk and Marc Terré, respectively co-principal viola and solo double-bass soloists at Brussels Opera La Monnaie/De Munt, and Eduardo Tonietto, cellist and artistic director of Brussels Muzieque.
However, the event goes beyond captivating melodies. It converges seamlessly with a thought-provoking conference on climate change with editor, journalist and climate change writer Philippa Nuttall sharing her insights. The stage is set for an unforgettable musical journey and a reflective dialogue on our planet's pressing challenges.
Through the artistry of the four accomplished female violin soloists, the organisers aspire to channel our collective energies toward raising awareness about climate change and inspiring sustainable practices for a greener future.
