“With Eight Seasons – says Wainrot – I went back to the pas de deux and a series of modules according to what I might call a kind of different vocabulary in my work, characterized by groups of sequences undoubtedly plentiful, much closer to symphonic music that chamber music. In Piazzolla four couples dance, at night, in meetings between men and women, with gestures and movements imported directly from Tango. The music of Vivaldi however, prevails daytime setting, choral, and a vision typically closer to the European culture, whose roots belongs to all its production”.
