Violinist Igor Yuzefovich will be featured during the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Eight Seasons’ concerts.

Presenting Antonio Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” and Astor Piazzolla’s “The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” (a combined “Eight Seasons”) on the same program might seem to be a very logical pairing — and that is precisely why the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra’s (MSO’s) November program will feature violinist Igor Yuzefovich’s version of the two works.

“Although composed centuries apart — Vivaldi’s work from 1716 to 1725 and Piazzolla’s from 1965 to 1970 — the two works perfectly represent nature’s seasons in the composers’ respective times and hemispheres,” MSO representatives said.

“We are so pleased to be able to bring these vibrant, joyous, and beautiful pieces to our audience,” said MSO Board President Jeffrey Parker. “Igor’s musicianship and understanding of these works will give our audience a perfect rendition of the two composers’ visions.”

“There are, of course, differences and similarities in each of these two works, but each is a masterpiece in its own right that has been captivating and exciting audiences for centuries (in Vivaldi’s case) and for more than half a century (in Piazzolla’s box). It is a fortunate audience that enjoys them both on the same program,” MSO representatives said.

Russian-born Yuzefovich currently is the concertmaster of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. He previously served as assistant concertmaster with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. “As an active chamber musician, he co-founded the Monument Piano Trio that debuted to critical acclaim in Baltimore and has since captivated audiences across the United States. Mr. Yuzefovich leads numerous master classes and is in high demand as a guest concertmaster.”

The concert will be performed at three venues on three days on the Delmarva Peninsula:

• Thursday, Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m., Easton Church of God, Easton, Md.;
