Four Seasons at Chatswood

Been quite a while since I've visited the Zenith Theatre again. Today, the Willoughby Symphony is staging a concert entitled Four Seasons. Programme as follows:

  • Corelli - Concerto Grosso, Op. 6 No. 8
  • Quantz - Flute Concerto
  • Puccini - I crisantemi (The Crysanthemums)
  • Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
WSO’s Principal Flautist Katrina Kelvin performs Quantz' Flute Concerto, while prize-winning Chinese-Australian violinist Kylie Liang performs Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Now, this version is special because we have a narrator who recites some Italian sonnets (with English translation, of course) as an introduction to each of the seasons/concertos. Not the best, but still nicely played.

Met up with GF at Westfield Chatswood, then off to Bhudda Raksa Thai Restaurant in Enfield for dinner.
