Elements of surprise: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Sunday, December 18th 2011, 11:30am

Hackney Proms present a family-friendly, Sunday morning concert in the Assembly Hall of the beautifully refurbished Stoke Newington Town Hall.

In this original programme, period-instrument ensemble Battuta explore the four Classical elements—Air, Fire, Earth and Water—and their representation in the Baroque period. Thunder, lightning, storms at sea and the fiery descent into hell are depicted in thrilling music by Rameau, Rebel and Telemann, and the more earthly delights of nature by Vivaldi’s most famous work, Le quattro stagioni (The Four Seasons).

Hackney Proms are relaxed, informal Sunday morning concerts, with coffee and croissants available at the interval. Children are welcome.
