Nikolaus Harnoncourt: Celebrates the Seasons

img  Tobias

Even though this means that fans will have to wait quite a while before being able to immerse themselves in the impressive sound of “The Seasons”, conceived “for a fairly large late-Classical orchestra, a chorus singing mostly in four parts, and three vocal soloists, representing archetypal country folk” according to Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, samples from the piece, as well as of other highlight from the Styriarte Festival, can be freely enjoyed on the official homepage of Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

As of this year, by the way, it would actually be correct to refer to the Austrian conductor as Dr. Nikolaus Harnoncourt: Nikolaus Harnoncourt, after being awarded with the honorary doctorate by the University Mozarteum Salzburg on January 26th – an honour which he gladly accepted with one of his famously interesting and opiniated speeches.
