Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, violin Music Director of the New Century Chamber Orchestra

Like plenty of other great ideas, at first glance, it might leave you scratching your head a bit. Start with an old chestnut by Antonio Vivaldi, the Four Seasons. And see it through an entirely different lens, the sultry, smoky Argentinian tango. Is that really such a good idea? Well, in a word, yes! Violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg plays Astor Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, from a concert in San Francisco. <p><b> A lot of PT listeners have asked how to get a CD of music by L'Arpeggiata and Barbara Furtuna.
