Heart warming on a cold night!
The Seasons is, to me, one of Haydn’s greatest masterpieces (and he produced many) and one of my all time favourites. There are many reasons for it, which you can explore in my review. It describes a wonderful performance of the piece by the incomparable Gabrieli Consort & Players.
It was a cold night but the music melted the ice and warmed up our hearts (and our hands) at the Barbican Hall, in London, last Saturday, 14th January 2012. A brilliant start for my new “reviewing” year!
