Max Richter: Vivaldi Recomposed

Recommended

Britten Sinfonia under André de Ridder, with violinist Daniel Hope and the Max Richter Ensemble.

Contemporary composer Max Richter re-imagines Vivaldi's timeless set of Baroque concertos, 'The Four Seasons'. Richter's version preserves the elegant beauty of the originals, but subtly modifies them with unexpected cadences and delicate electronic touches. In addition, the Max Richter Ensemble also performs music from Richter's most recent album, 'Infra', piano and string fragments inspired by TS Eliot's 'The Waste Land'.
