Max Richter - Recomposing Vivaldi

The Four Seasons

Performance date: 17/12/2013
56 Min

Much more than a recomposition, Max Richter’s rework of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is a revival, a reinvigoration, and a reincarnation. Exploring each season through a new lens, while never losing the affection he has for the piece, the radical Richter draws out the heart of each of the well-known movements and gives it new life, bridging the Baroque era with the 21st century and reinstating the rockstar showmanship of Vivaldi. As one of the most recorded, and arguably one of the most famous, works of classical music, learn about the background of Antonio Vivaldi, as well as the story of how the project came to be through numerous perspectives, including those of the leading soloist, Daniel Hope, and the composer himself.
