Composer Max Richter has taken apart Vivaldi's original set of violin concertos, "The Four Seasons," and reconfigured the components while reclaiming the work as a beautiful object. Richter opened up some of the repeating patterns already present in the work and as he says, “literally wrote myself into Vivaldi’s score.” For this New Sounds, Max Richter joins us to present some of his "Recomposed: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons.”
