Vivaldi’s Four Seasons /
Max Richter’s Vivaldi Recomposed

 

Experience back-to-back versions of Vivaldi’s timelessly thrilling masterpiece, The Four Seasons, including Max Richter’s modern “recomposition” that topped classical album charts in 22 countries.

Daniel Hope’s connection to the Zurich Chamber Orchestra dates back to his childhood. “I heard my first Mozart, my first Bach, my first Vivaldi with this orchestra,” he recalls, “and it left a decisive mark on my own musicality.” Winner of the 2015 European Cultural Prize for Music, whose previous recipients include Daniel Barenboim, Plácido Domingo, and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Hope now serves as the ensemble’s music director and performs Vivaldi’s Four Seasons alongside a new take on the work by British composer Max Richter. He forces us to listen more closely to both the new work and the original, which has become so ubiquitous that we almost don’t hear it any more.
