Explaining what inspired him to recompose Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Richter describes the piece as ‘such engaging, attractive material that it's easy for young people to connect with it; it's very immediate. As everyone does, I had the piece in my brain and knew my favourite moments'. In a mix of the technological and traditional, Max Richter sheds new light on this timeless masterpiece.

This album is licensed for download from Universal Music Group.

‘It starts with a shimmer of something strange and soft, an ambient mist of strings that's both electronic and acoustic... Out of these shifting sonic tides comes an ensemble of violins... it's Vivaldi's Four Seasons - but not as we know it.' The Guardian

‘Using post-minimalist procedures to extract fertile fragments and reshape the materials into new music, Richter has created an album that speaks to a generation familiar with remixes, sampling, and sound collages, though his method transcends the manipulation of prerecorded music. Richter has actually rescored the Four Seasons and given the movements of Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter thorough makeovers that vary substantially from the originals. The new material is suggestive of a dream state, where drifting phrases and recombined textures blur into walls of sound, only to re-emerge with stark clarity and poignant immediacy.' AllMusic.com
