German-born British composer Max Richter’s re- (or de) composed Four Seasons by beloved red head Antonio Vivaldi. In this reworking, the Möbius sequences of Vivaldi and Bach meet the static harmony of minimalist composers Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
If you enjoy hearing classic works from a fresh perspective, listen to the other “recomposed” works from Deutsche Grammophon’s series.
Matthias Arfmann recomposes works recorded by Karajan
Matthew Herbert recomposes Mahler’s Symphony No. 10
Carl Craig & Moritz von Oswald recomposes works by Ravel and Mussorgsky
Jimi Tenor recomposes works of the avant-garde
Darryl Brenzel’s The Re-(w)Rite of Spring for jazz orchestra is mighty fine also.
Which reminds me of this.
