5.0 out of 5 stars Re-composed not Re-mixed, 26 Nov 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons (Audio CD)
This is a whole new composition in its own right which takes as its starting point the famous Vivaldi source material and increases the rhythmic drive, increases the emotion and melodic lyricism to a 20th century octane, exploring the commonalities between Baroque and post-minimalist styles.

One only has to think back to Stravinsky's recompositions of Pergolesi and remember that the business of re-examining the music of the past has long been a perfectly valid strand in music-making (and not nonsense at all!).

Doing this takes classical music outside of its museum culture, breathing new life into it to be appreciated by new audiences and to allow the original music to be cast in an exciting new light.

An excellent piece of work!
