 Fabulous Re-Work  May 16, 2014 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "Max Richter surely revitalized this old favorite of mine, while preserving the original essence of Vivaldi' composition. I can listen to this rendering repeatedly, and sometimes alternate it with the traditional work. I'd like to hear other favorites of mine re-composed, if I can get the same effect." Report Abuse
 I'm confused March 28, 2013 By Martin Pinsky (Middleburg, FL) See All My Reviews "Why would anyone want billing as the recomposer of Vivaldi? Why doesn't Richter write his own music? I can see a transcription of a keyboard work, but to recompose? Where are the purists? Why aren't they screaming? you know the ones that drive pianists nuts when they play Bach on piano? I am still trying to get over neurotic cuckold Mahler reorchestrating Leonore 3. Leave the masters alone-- there is a difference between variant interpretations and this silly novelty nonsense of "recomposing?" What next? playing Vivaldi backwards? I think these alleged musicians have too much time on their hands." Report Abuse
