Free Streaming This Week: Piazzolla The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

Seattle Symphony rebroadcasts Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires led by Associate Conductor Lee Mills and featuring Principal Second Violin Elisa Barston

This week, the Seattle Symphony brings The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by famed Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla to its ongoing lineup of free weekly streams of past concerts.

Led by Douglas F. King Associate Conductor Lee Mills with Seattle Symphony Principal Second Violin Elisa Barston as soloist, the concert was originally performed at Benaroya Hall on December 28, 2019.

Lee Mills conducts with a “precision and enthusiasm [that bring] the entire audience [the] enchantment of the pieces [he leads]” (movimento.com), while Elisa Barston “[projects] the kind of warmth and bloom that are not always to be experienced” (Seen and Heard International).

Audiences can tune in for Piazzolla The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires on YouTube or Facebook during the three regular broadcast times: Thursday at 7:30pm, Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm.

Piazzolla The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires joins previously announced education and family programming, Meet the Instrument: Percussion with Seattle Symphony Principal Percussion Michael A. Werner on Wednesday at 11am and Tiny Clips for Tiny Tots: Percussion hosted by Seattle Symphony Horn John Turman on Friday at 11am.
