4 Seasons 4 Croatian National Theatres 3 Pianos – live
We are very proud that Euro-Unit was since the very beginning and still is a sponsor of the project “4 seasons for 3 pianos”. After the release of the CD, the album will be presented live in four Croatian National Theatres in four cities (Zagreb, Rijeka, Split and Varaždin). Oficial tour name is “4 Seasons 4 Croatian National Theatres 3 Pianos”.
To mark the release of the CD, distributed by prestigious Naxos, Vivaldi’s baroque masterpiece Four Seasons in a completely new and energetic way, will be presented by three famous pianists Matej Meštrović, Matija Dedić and Hakan Ali Toker. They will be joined by a very special guest, pianist and composer Matthew Mayer from the USA.
Four of the most popular Vivaldi violin concerts in the arrangement of Mateja Meštrović for the three pianos will present Balkan, gypsy and jazz rhythms, and the score also allow improvisation while each of the pianists will have his own piano solo performance.
The album “4 seasons for 3 pianos” is awarded with 2 prestigious “Global Music Awards” for the best album and for the piano trio.
Navona Records proudly presents “4 seasons for 3 pianos”, by Croatian pianist and composer Mateja Meštrović, in energetic transcription that brings a new touch of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Together with Matija Dedić and Hakan Ali Toker on three pianos (and accordion), Meštrović thoroughly reviews Vivaldi’s concerts, and his work is far more than an ordinary transcription of this famous piece of music. Mestrović’s radical work, transformed into almost entirely new work, was published by the American publisher Navona Records.
