Seasons: Live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [Official Trailer]

On April 10, 2011, four extraordinary guitarists premiered a new composition by Anthony Wilson. Commissioned by master guitar maker John Monteleone, the piece showcases his quartet of instruments called The Four Seasons. 

The featured guitarists are legends-in-the-making Anthony Wilson, Julian Lage, Steve Cardenas, and Chico Pinheiro, who captured the rapt attention of a standing-room-only audience with their collective energy, virtuosity and musical rapport. 

The concert consisted of Anthony Wilson's four-part suite "Seasons: A Song Cycle For Guitar Quartet," solo pieces by each guitarist, and a version of Joni Mitchell's classic "The Circle Game," again arranged for the quartet by Anthony Wilson. The deluxe two disc package features an audio CD of the entire April 10 concert, as well as a DVD containing a 50-minute documentary film and a photographic slideshow tracking the history of this exciting collaborative project from inception to premiere. ****A major musical event**** AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOVEMBER 15, 2011.
