Gioacchino Rossini: Ouverture to “Wilhelm Tell”
Astor Piazzolla: The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires (Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas)
Joachim Raff: Symphony No. 9 in E minor, op. 208, “In Summer”
In his ninth symphony, the Swiss Romantic composer Joachim Raff shared what summer in Switzerland feels like. It is a personal favourite of Mei-Ann Chen – a holiday in the mountains, just like the “Tell” overture with the lake idyll and an Alpine thunderstorm. In Buenos Aires, on the other hand, summer is dancing tango on the scorching asphalt of the city. Lara St. John shines with her enchanting violin sounds – in Piazzolla’s Four Seasons.
