How do you take something as perfect as Vivaldi's Four Seasons and possibly make it better? You give it to Max Richter.

This recomposed version of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons was premiered in the UK at the Barbican Centreon October 31 2012. It was performed by the Britten Sinfonia, and conducted by André de Ridder with violinist Daniel Hope.
