Max Richter - Recomposed: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons

Britten Sinfonia and Thomas Gould return to The Apex with Max Richter’s Recomposed - his celebrated 21st Century reimagining of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

Vivaldi’s popular work is everywhere, whether accompanying TV ads or featuring regularly in the concert hall. Max Richter puts a fresh energy into it and invites us to listen to it anew as he re-composes it.

Richter says: "The original Four Seasons is a phenomenally innovative and creative piece of work. It's so dynamic, so full of amazing images. And it feels very contemporary... my aim was to fall in love with the original again – and I have."

The album shot to the top of the classical charts in 22 countries on its release and Britten Sinfonia has a particularly close association with the piece, having given the concert premiere in 2012 and the first performance at the BBC Proms - to a rapturous reception - in 2023.

Full programme:
Purcell - Chaconne
Vivaldi - Concerto for 2 violins in A minor, RV522
Philip Glass - Company for strings
Steve Reich - Duet for 2 violins and strings
JS Bach - Brandenburg Concerto No 3
Vivaldi / Max Richter - The Four Seasons Recomposed
