Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’
If you heard Emma McGrath’s roof-raising performance in Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” at the Seattle Symphony’s “Beyond the Score” program in February 2011, you’ll no doubt welcome the chance to hear her play it again. She’ll do so this weekend, as leader and violinist in the SSO’s next Baroque & Wine concert — a program that also features Handel’s Concerti grossi Op. 6 in E minor and F major as well as Vivaldi’s Concerto for Strings in G, “Alla Rustica.” 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Benaroya Hall, 200 University St., Seattle; $19-$81 (206-215-4747 or www.seattlesymphony.org). Note: wine-tasting begins at 6:30 p.m. each night; $10 for four pours.
