 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

 #1 classical album of the year! January 4, 2013
By JUAN M R. (Elmwood Park, IL) -- See All My Reviews
I bought this disc as soon as it was released. I also downloaded it from iTunes. It is my humble opinion that this disc, already named #1 classical disc on iTunes, is one of the best albums I have heard in a very long, long time! Vivaldi's music has been "recomposed" in a masterful way by Herr Richter. I gave the disc to my Lady Friend and she loved it! I listen to my iTunes download every day! So far, I haven't gotten tired of listening to it and I don't believe I ever will. It's that good!!! Report Abuse

 Very interesting January 4, 2013
By Michael K. (Seattle, WA) -- See All My Reviews
An interesting take on an old chestnut. To the previous reviewer-did you actually listen to this or purchase it? It is 43:51 minutes long, not 24. Report Abuse

 You have got to be kidding January 4, 2013
By Eulogio Galvez (Bridgeport, CT) -- See All My Reviews
You have got to be kidding me. Once upon a time in the land of vinyl records, it was acceptable all be it unnecessary to record a piece as short as the Four Season as a singleton. Today costs being what they are, it is totally unacceptable to record what is at best a twenty four minute pieces and make us pay for it. I am astounded that DG thinks it can get away with this. It doesen't matter how new and interesting this is. I for one need to be careful where I spend my money and this isn't it. Report Abuse
