The combination of Luca Artioli’s photographs and the tour of
the Cameristi della Scala playing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in
Moscow and the Baltic States is truly astonishing. A series of
vibrant images expressing the common characteristics between
music and photography, such as tone and color.
As a result, Vivaldi’s Spring movement in the key of E major
corresponds to the deep blue of the sky; the Summer
movement in G minor is the yellow ochre of sunburnt earth and
searing heat; the Autumn movement in F major is the dark
green of meadows and the heady season of the grape-harvest;
the Winter movement in F minor translates visually into the
white of snow. Poetry and music, photography of the soul
resulting in an unusual and absorbing juxtaposition.
