Vivaldi & Piazolla

What do Vivaldi and Piazzolla have in common? How do the “Four Seasons” react when combined with tangos and interspersed equally? The celebrated violin duo The Twiolins with siblings Marie-Luise and Christoph Dingler have taken on these questions and created whole new “Eight Seasons” of their own.

Spring is all about the angels, they die and rise, summer experiences melancholy and mysticism, in autumn the hunting horns are stopped by a hora zero and in winter you want to tango, back to the south.

It was an adventure that the Twiolins embarked on with the arrangement of the “Four Seasons” and the tangos of Piazolla, but days and nights spent over the sheet music unleashed unprecedented creativity. Both Vivaldi and Piazzolla have undergone a transformation, proving new aspects in this chamber music version that these great works have not shown before. This project takes the listener on a musical adventure through two centuries and hemispheres, eliminating the boundaries between continents, musical borders and traditions without compromising their essence.

Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” juxtaposed with eleven contrasting tangos by Astor Piazzolla – with the Twiolins’ “Eight Seasons” the audience is invited to enjoy Vivaldi’s virtuoso piece and to let themselves be seized by Argentine longing and passion. To bring in the sound of Buenos Aires with heat, dance and melancholy, Christoph brought the viola into the Twiolins lineup, with its own depth and heaviness.

Marie-Luise and Christoph started playing the violin at the age of seven. Just four years later they took part in the national competition Jugend musiziert for the first time and achieved first place six times in the following years. The award-winning siblings have performed in New Zealand, China, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Tunisia, Spain, Italy, France, Lithuania, Austria and Switzerland as well as at national and international festivals and concert series (including Mozartfest Würzburg, Rudolf-Oetker-Halle, Klassiksommer Hamm, Hohenloher Kultursommer, Weilburger Schlosskonzerte).
