A Four Seasons for the 21st century

Earthcycle is a unique concert experience which highlights the 21st century’s greatest concern whilst celebrating nature and our place within it. Featuring guest artists – folk singer Jackie Oates and violinist David Le Page – Earthcycle marks the 300th anniversary of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with a compelling new version by baroque/jazz musician and composer David Gordon. Interspersed with traditional folk songs related to the theme of the seasons and enhanced by discreet lighting and contextual film footage, Earthcycle is an innovative and timely project which finds a thrilling way to engage with humanity’s most urgent threat.
