 Vivaldi for the modern age February 13, 2017 By David R. (Denver, CO) See All My Reviews "Are you at the point that if you hear "The Four Seasons" one more time, your ears will turn inside out and throttle your brain? Yeah, me too. However, Richter's reimaging of the old standby is superb. He strips out all the baroque floridity and what remains is taut, exciting, provoking and refreshed. Cannot be recommended enough. As an aside, "Winter 1" is used as the opening theme of "Chef's Table," the documentary on Netflix of the world's greatest restaurants and chefs. So, if you have watched the show "Winter 1" will make you hungry. Or want to cook. Or both." Report Abuse
 Breathtaking retake of an old classic June 12, 2014 By J. Silleck (Tarrytown, NY) See All My Reviews "Heard this haphazardly on the radio and was quite stunned. Each time I listen to it again, I find it thrilling, humorous, and, if I dare say, immensely moving. Bravo Max!" Report Abuse
