4th Annual Wild Beast Concert Series: The Rite of Seasons

This exhilarating musical journey through the seasons also takes listeners around the globe as CalArts music makers offer performances that are by turns finely evocative and boldly visceral. The jaunt begins in Baroque-era Italy with a fresh interpretation of Antonio Vivaldi’s landmark, The Four Seasons. Next are the Americas, first with Astor Piazzolla’s famous tangos from Buenos Aires, then with Malcolm Goldstein’s The Seasons, in which the composer layers musical textures onto the natural soundscapes of Vermont. The concert concludes by recalling Paris in 1913, when scandalized audiences rioted at the avant-garde innovations of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Marking the centennial of this epochal work, CalArts’ virtuosos reconfigure the orchestral suite for wind quintet, piano and percussion.


Free outdoor music concert. Open lawn seating; families and picnics encouraged.
