March 6-12 2014, Tafelmusik presented the Four Seasons: A Cycle of the Sun, a concert designed by Alison Mackay. Tafelmusik's virtuoso violinists performed Vivaldi's Spring, Summer, and Fall concertos, and Wen Zhao (Chinese pipa), Aruna Narayan Kalle (Indian sarangi), and Aqsarniit (Inuit throat singers) brought to the stage seasonal music from other traditions. The grand finale was Winter by Mychael Danna, the Oscar-winning Canadian composer who recently scored Life of Pi.
