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.”

Northern Horns

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Hear the startling sounds of horns...of the North...on this New Sounds.  There's Alpine music for horns by the Russian composer Arkady Shilkloper, a member of the Moscow Art Trio, along with Danish composer Niels-Ole Bo Johansen's trombones and electronics.  Not to be outdone, Hauschka, (aka German pianist/composer Volker Bertelmann), has been at it again.  This time a playful collaborative “post-classical” record, “Salon des Amateurs,” with Calexico members John Convertino and Joe Burns, múm’s drummer Samuli Kosmine, and a guest spot by violinist Hilary Hahn.
