Dizzying runs, a tenderly floating violin melody, pounding rhythms. But what am I even hearing? How did Vivaldi manage it? Maestro and 'stand-up' conductor Jules van Hessen is your guide into the sometimes impenetrable world of classical music. Conducting and narrating, from the conductor's stand and in between orchestra members, Maestro Jules delves into the enchanting music of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. In this way, he makes all music attractive and understandable for everyone!

First, he unravels the secrets of this 300-year-old masterpiece with violinist Noa Wildschut, supported by film projections. During Jules' narrative, the orchestra plays crucial fragments, remarkable solos, and thrilling transitions. Everyone knows the cheerful beginning of these four famous violin concertos. But what's the story behind this music? How do you evoke scorching summer heat? How do you make a violin shiver? And what was Vivaldi doing in a girls' orphanage...? After the break, the entire piece is played again, the images return, and you experience the music with fresh ears!
