Max Richter - New Four Seasons - Vivaldi Recompose
Vinyl LP pressing. 2022 release. In this "alternative rendering," Chineke! Orchestra - the groundbreaking British ensemble consisting of majority Black, Asian, and ethnically diverse musicians - and American violinist Elena Urioste, play on gut strings and period instruments, the kind that Vivaldi would have heard and played in his own time. The new recording was produced on an analog mixing desk at Richter's own cutting edge studio Studio Richter Mahr with the composer himself playing an early Moog from the 1970s.
