Navona Records proudly presents 4 Seasons for 3 Pianos, a whirlwind transcription of Vivaldi’s masterful string concertos by Croatian pianist and composer Matej Meštrovic. Performing with Hakan A. Toker and Matija Dedic on three pianos (and accordion), Meštrovic thoroughly reimagines the four concertos, his work exceeding that of a normal transcription. The collection, in such a radical new form, becomes almost a whole new work. Despite this, Meštrovic’s version of this piece is, ironically, historically informed in its own way. Vivaldi’s Venice was part of a republic that spread from the Italian city, across Dalmatia (present-day Croatia), to the borders of the Ottoman Empire in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina.
