Max Richter ‘Recomposed – The Four Seasons’ Preview

I love this idea of recomposing, or classically remixing Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Furniture adverts and Classic FM have long since killed Vivaldi’s music for me, so I’m genuinely interested in seeing the structure messed with in this way.


Vincent Segal & Ballaké Sissoko

Something a little different; and beautiful, if you like this kind of thing. I’ve recently been listening to their album, Chamber Music, which is remarkable. In case you were wondering, the strange-looking instrument is a Kora.

Skip to around 2:30 if you want to get past the preamble and straight to the music. Why are there no cafés like this where I live?
