In May 2019 D&P Music had their first world premiere performance, where they performed CORSO - three miniatures composed by the Belgian composer Wilfried Westerlinck.

The event took place at the Bulgarian Cultural Institute in London and was great success.

''...Dozens of composers since have been inspired by The Four Seasons. One of our favorite takes is Astor Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires (Las cuatro estaciones porteñas). Piazzolla is known for having pioneered nuevo tango, or new tango, which incorporates diverse musical elements. In The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires we hear Piazzolla’s love of 18th-century works and modern jazz masterpieces, both styles in which improvisation is essential.
Unlike Vivaldi’s concertos, Piazzolla’s Four Seasons wasn’t originally intended to be a series. Piazzolla wrote the first of the four compositions Summer (Verano porteño) ,followed by Autumn (Otoño porteño), Spring (Primavera porteña), and Winter (Invierno Porteño) came around five years later...''
