Travel Tip: Classical Music in United States
Max Richter



Max Richter
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Le Poisson Rouge  •  Ongoing
 
 
British composer Max Richter is now part of Deutsche Grammophon’s Recomposed series, in which contemporary artists are invited to re-work a traditional piece of music. The idea of recomposing and re-processing musical works was common practice in Bach’s time and the project presents an exciting opportunity to make favorite classics relevant to a wider audience. However, Richter’s approach differs fundamentally from the preceding releases. In contrast to previous participants, such as Matthew Herbert or Moritz von Oswald & Carl Craig, who reworked recordings from the extensive Deutsche Grammophon catalogue, Richter actually ‘recomposed’ Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. He is the first in the series to employ an existing score, ‘inscribe’ his new composition into Vivaldi’s and record a ‘new’ version of a familiar work, thus creating a new piece of music.
 
Richter brings Recomposed to New York City with two live performances.
