Inspired performance puts fresh air in `Four Seasons'

Music Review

April 21, 2007|By Tim Smith | Tim Smith,sun music critic

It used to be said that I Love Lucy was being broadcast somewhere in the world just about every hour of the day. My guess is that the classical music equivalent of such ubiquity would be Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons.

Although the 1725 piece hardly registered in the public consciousness 40 or 50 years ago, it is never out of earshot now, not when you figure in all the 18th-century-saturated programming of classical radio stations and the baroque-heavy repertoire piped into elevators and lobbies.

The BSO performs at 8 tonight and 3 p.m. tomorrow at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $25-$78. Call 410-783-8000 or go to
