Anyone familiar with his album’s worth of music for ringtones (24 Postcards in Full Colour) won’t be shocked to learn that British composer Max Richter has rescored Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons as the latest installment in Deutsche Grammophon’s “ReComposed” series. Vivaldi’s original gestures, shapes, and textures are sampled, looped, extended, and dubbed out in a manner that honors the original by acknowledging what has been lost and gained by its ubiquity. Richter’s otherworldly and rhythmically rejuvenated quasi-minimalist remix will be performed here by ensemble LPR, under the direction of Tito Muñoz, and feature violinist Daniel Hope, who recorded it for DG with the Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin. Richter describes the work as a “conversation” with the 16th-century composer, who might want check his voicemail.
