The Bandura is a plucked string instrument – and the national instrument of Ukraine. And Tatyana Mazur and Sergey Shamrai, of the B&B Project are showing exactly what it’s capable of. This is Vivaldi as you’ve never heard it before
Tatyana plays the bandura with Sergey on the button accordion and their YouTube channel includes music from Vivaldi to Metallica.
But this version of Vivaldi’s ‘Summer’ is quite something
'Summer' from Vivaldi's The Four Seasons – on Bandura and Button accordion
This is Vivaldi as you've never heard it before
This section depicts a sudden summer storm – in the poems which are supposed to have inspired the work the lines said: “the heavens roar and great hailstones beat down.”
