Max Richter / Classic FM interview

Bookmark and Share

Max Richter recently interviewed with Classic FM and discussed several subjects, including his DG album - Vivaldi Recomposed, which features an extensive reworking of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Richter fell in love with the classic piece as a child, but after hearing it repeatedly in stores, advertisements, and similar settings, he found it overdone and eventually grew tired of it. This new compositional reworking of The Four Seasons was his way of rediscovering and re-engaging with the work. Though three-quarters of the notes in this version are Richter's, Vivaldi's original piece can be heard clearly throughout.
