A Four Seasons for All Time
View All Heifetz Videos of the Week

The more I learn about Baroque composers, the more I realize they are the original rock stars.  They were innovating all the time. and experimenting with so much – different sounds, different techniques.  They were also ornamenting and improvising onstage all the time – and that takes a lot of guts.  We are kind of doing that as well today,  So if you’re expecting to hear a traditional rendition of this piece that you can hear a 1,000 different recordings of on YouTube or whatever….today ain’t it. So enjoy the ride! – Rachell Ellen Wong

All 47 entries in our 2021 Festival of Concerts had memorable moments, but there was one that a patron of ours declared “is an entry in the Heifetz Hall of Fame:” The July day when Heifetz alum and Avery Fisher Career Grant winner Rachell Ellen Wong took the Heifetz stage by storm to lead a hand-built “Heifetz Baroque Band” through a sensational and utterly unique take on Vivaldi’s timeless Four Seasons.  Enjoy!
