To say that we are excited about working with British composer Max Richter would be an understatement.
You might be familiar with Max’s previous works: his film scoring (Waltz for Bashir, Prometheus, Shutter Island), his artistic collaborations with Tilda Swinton, Julian Opie and Robert Wyatt amongst others, or you might have been lucky to see his dance and ballet music being performed. Max also created the chamber opera Sum, which premiered to great acclaim at the Royal Opera House.
Max’s latest project is daring, contemporary but with a very classical core and sound: He re-imagined Vivaldi’s famous The Four Seasons and ‘recomposed’ it for Deutsche Grammophon’s Recomposed series. Violinist Daniel Hope, conductor André de Ridder and the Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin joined Max’s project for the recording.
Recomposed by Max Richter will be released in the UK on 29th October 2012 followed by a concert at Barbican Hall on 31st October 2012 with Daniel Hope, André de Ridder and Britten Sinfonia.
And… Watch out for the #Recomposed Classical Takeover across London this October!
