1. Like some of us, Max Richter grew tired of Vivaldi’s warhorse The Four Seasons. But instead of writing off the piece forever, Richter rewrote it. He blended Vivaldi’s work with his own music, tucking in some light electronics for a modern makeover. Watch him perform it with violinist Daniel Hope at Le Poisson Rouge.

As a child, I fell in love with it. It’s beautiful, charming music with a great melody and wonderful colors. Then, later on, as I became more musically aware — literate, studied music and listened to a lot of music — I found it more difficult to love it. We hear it everywhere — when you’re on hold, you hear it in the shopping center, in advertising; it’s everywhere. For me, the record and the project are trying to reclaim the piece, to fall in love with it again
