Version 2 of The Four Seasons: Recomposed By Max Richter featuring 5 New Bonus Tracks & New Artwork

British composer Max Richter is the latest artist to join Deutsche Grammophon’s ‘Recomposed’ series, which invites contemporary artists to re-work an original piece of music, making it accessible to a wider audience. Rather than re-working a recording from the DG catalog as has been the practice of previous participants, Richter has chosen to ‘recompose’ Vivaldi’s original score for The Four Seasons.

The end result is an amalgamation of Richter’s new composition and Vivaldi’s familiar work in a fresh piece of music. Featured here are British violinist Daniel Hope, German conductor André de Ridder and Berlin’s Konzerthaus Chamber Orchestra.

Version 2 of The Four Seasons: Recomposed By Max Richter features stunning new artwork and five new bonus tracks, so called shadows which are electronic landscapes that were made for a live performance of the work with accompanying visual material made by the Danish game designers DarkMatters. He and Max developed these pieces to intercut with the written orchestral material, and to illuminate the abstract visual world of the images.

"The Four Seasons is an omnipresent piece of music and like no other part of our musical landscape. I hear it in the supermarket regularly, am confronted with it in adverts or hear it as muzak when on hold," said Richter. "The challenge was to ‘create a new score, an experimental hybrid, that constantly references “Vivaldi” but also “Richter” and that is current but simultaneously preserves the original spirit of this great work. In my notes you will find parts that consist of 90 percent of my own material; but on the other hand you will find moments where I have only altered a couple of notes in Vivaldi’s original score and shortened, prolonged or shifted some of the beats. I literally wrote myself into Vivaldi’s score." - Max Richter
