The Four Seasons (Puyallup)

About This Performance


The talents of Sinfonietta's Co-concertmasters, Brittany Boulding and Denise Dillenbeck, are on full display in this program inspired by the changing seasons.

Vivaldi's immortal collection of concertos published in 1725 are known the world over for their evocative sounds and virtuoso demands on the soloist. Centuries later, Astor Piazzolla was inspired to write his own version, infused with the rhythm and soul of the Argentinean tango. Warm up your winter with an afternoon featuring these two remarkable works, side by side!

The Sonnets:

Vivaldi was one of the first composers to compose what is later referred to as 'programmatic music': instrumental works meant to express a certain story or concept.  Each concerto was published with a sonnet- presumably written by the composer himself- which describe the effects each piece evokes.  Click here to see the sonnet accompanying each season.
From a summer thunderstorm, to an Autumn hunting party, or slipping on ice in winter, these poems add another dimension to such a well known and beloved work.  For this performance, Northwest Sinfonietta is joined by local poet and writer Jim Cantu.  Mr. Cantu will also present a series of works during the Piazzolla Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. 

Jim Cantú has penned poems, prose and personal essays. His written work has appeared in Raven Chronicles (2017), Seattle Poetic Grid (2017), the online Whirlwind Magazine (2016) and the 4Culture & King County Metro "Poetry on the Buses" project (2015). In August 2016, he was the ‘Writer-In-Residence’ for the month long ‘La Cocina’ a Pop-Up Latinx Artists’ Salon hosted by ‘La Sala’ and held in conjunction with the Seattle Art Fair.  He is also a graduate of the Artist Trust 2016 Literary Edge program.  

Jim works with KBCS 91.3 FM radio as a News producer at, host for the morning public affairs show and periodic visiting DJ. He is also a radio producer with KVRU 105.7 FM.  Jim’s community activities include KBCS 91.3 FM, KVRU 105.7 FM, La Sala Seattle, the Raven Chronicles and Seattle City of Literature.
