I love orchestral music, but I've never been the biggest fan of Vivaldi, especially his most well known piece Four Seasons. There's a level of pomp and bombast in Baroque music that has never really set well with me. Max Richter's "recomposition" completely discards everything baroque in his own Four Seasons. The end result isn't a celebration of the time of year like the original, but an introspective look at the feeling each season elicits. The melodies are all culled from Vivaldi's 1725 composition, but that's where the similarities end. If you're looking for something that follows the past to the tee, get Swoboda or Molinari's. If you're looking for something oh so familiar yet strikingly different, Richter has you covered.

Richter continues to delight, surprise and accomplish. This release is just one more example of his DSA.

A near flawless musical composition, both paying tribute to the original work and moving in beautiful new directions. Top notch work by Richter.

extraordinary. i am not sure if it's extraordinary because there is still so much of Vivaldi left, or because of what Richter added. Anyway. Superb.
