Today’s video premiere is a little different to usual. British composer Max Richter has reinterpreted Antonio Vivaldi’s first movement from The Four Seasons as part of Deutsche Grammophon’s acclaimed Recomposed series. The series sees contemporary artists such as Matthew Herbert or Moritz von Oswald & Carl Craig invited to rework a classical piece of music. Enjoy some atypical music here on EB and watch the Pfadfinderei-directed video below:
Max Richter thinks big. How else can you explain recomposing one of the most celebrated composers in history? Nevertheless, the German neoclassical composer has taken Vivaldi‘s The Four Seasons and, as part of the Deutsche Grammophon series Recomposed, edited it in his own fashion. Conducted by André Ridder and performed by the Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin, Recomposed by Max Richter is an album sure to stir up much discussion among fans of classical music.
Today’s EB Video Premiere was directed by Matt Hulse, a musician and artist himself. He’s currently working on film projection for the Scottish Clarinet Quartet. Watch the video below and start some dialogue of your own.
