Renowned Slovakian Violinist VLADIMIR JABLOKOV Presents 'FOUR SEASONS EXPLAINED' Tour

Saturday, 7 May 2022, 8.00pm

Renowned Slovakian Violinist Vladimir Jablokov returns to Irish theatres with a brand new show entitled VLADIMIR JABLOKOV: 'FOUR SEASONS EXPLAINED'. Vladimir Jablokov’s Summer Tour of Ireland will include dates in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Clare, Kerry, Limerick, Wexford, Offaly, Westmeath, Meath, Kildare and Waterford this May and June 2022.

Vladimir Jablokov gives an amazing re-shaping to one of the world’s most famous and popular pieces Vivaldi’s Four Seasons as part of his ‘FOUR SEASONS EXPLAINED’ Summer Tour, and 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.

Vladimir’s father performed Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons regularly and some of his performances and recordings go back to 1985 - the year Vladimir was born! “I remember one concert in Bratislava when I was about 10 years old. Dad was not only playing the full Four Seasons with his chamber orchestra, but he was also reading the sonnets published in the original Vivaldi's score 300 years ago”. Vladimir now wants to continue his father’s legacy and explain the 300 year old sonnets to a wider audience and this show is a personal tribute to his Dad who sadly passed away last August.

The London Evening Standard described Vladimir as “the Nigel Kennedy of his nation”.

Following an exhilarating performance at the prestigious Royal Variety Performance attended by Royalty and esteemed guests, Giles Cooper said of Vladimir and his musicians “About five seconds in, they had the whole of the London Palladium eating out of the palm of their hands. Their performance was faultless. I've rarely seen an audience get so carried away to classical music like that.” Giles Cooper, Executive Producer of the Royal Variety Performance & Chairman of the Royal Variety Charity

Vladimir Jablokov will be performing a unique arrangement of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, arranged for 2 Violins, Cello and Piano, accompanied by on-screen visuals retelling the meaning and story of this beautiful music based on the original notes published nearly 300 years ago. The Four Seasons are some of Vivaldi’s most famous pieces, depicting the moods and scenes from each of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

Vladimir’s hand-picked violin, cello and piano ensemble will begin with a unique arrangement of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The latter half of the concert will also feature some of the most popular pieces in Vladimir’s repertoire, including Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5, Blue Danube, Strauss’ Radetzky March, Theme from Schindler’s List, If I Were a Rich Man and more audience favourites.
