Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons

January 1, 2013

Max RichterI don’t know diddly squat about classical music.  But if you have ears you have heard parts of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.  It is constantly in movies.  For the classical music snob it is so often heard that it is hated – like a pop song that has had too much air play.

I read a review in the Wall Street Journal that was enough to stir my interest to sample it. That sample was enough to get me to buy it.

This is an amazing piece of work – classical music for the Radiohead fan. I can’t get enough of it.  I listened to it 5 times today.  It works in the background and you can just sit and listen to it.  I have no idea what it must mean to someone intimate with the source piece, but judging by the reviews it is a brilliant reinvention.  For an ignorant slob like me it is just a plain mind blower.
