Vladimir Jablokov Concert Dublin
Sensational violinist VLADIMIR JABLOKOV brings a brand new Symphonic version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Bord Gais Energy Theatre on 24 & 25 MAY 2024.
Vladimir’s hand-picked 45-piece orchestra will be performing on stage accompanied by visuals on the screen.
FOUR SEASONS EXPLAINED: with this unique arrangement, not only will we get to hear the most amazing music but we will also get a visual translation of the 300 year old sonnets that inspired the pieces.
Nature waking up in Spring, birds singing, destructive Summer Storm, drunken shepherds in Autumn after making the wine, the person sitting in front of the warm fireplace in the house, while he hears the raindrops outside his window in Winter.
It’s not easy to read old sonnets written in a poetic language and put it with music as it is being played. But if you see a sleeping Goatherd and barking Dog at the exact moment one of the instruments is miming the sound of the bark, it will make sense right away and really adds to the enjoyment of the pieces.
Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi is the most popular classical composition of all time. Hundreds of performers took the challenge of performing it throughout the centuries and dozens of recordings were released. The unique part of this work is the story behind the music. Well ahead of his time Vivaldi released the Four Seasons with the accompanying sonnets to explain the different moments.
Now Vladimir explains the story with abstract moving images on screen throughout the work based on original notes published over 300 years ago.
The concert will be conducted by Vladimir’s youngest brother Viktor Jablokov who also arranged and orchestrated this work.
The latter half of the concert will feature Vladimir with his brother Anton Jablokov performing popular classics including, Hava Nagila, Bella Ciao, a theme from The Godfather, Those Were The Days and Bohemian Rhapsody.
