Following the success of Recomposed by Max Richter, DG will be releasing version 2 of the album in April. The new edition will come with new artwork in stunning packaging, and lots of new material, including brand new remixes, shadows and the film that was shot in Berlin in December.

SHADOWS: Electronic Soundscapes

The album features 5 new tracks, so called “shadows which are electronic landscapes that were made for a live performance of the work with accompanying visual material made by the Danish game designers DarkMatters. He and Max developed these pieces to intercut with the written orchestral material, and to illuminate the abstract visual world of the images.

Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

Vivaldi: The Four Seasons


Kati Debretzeni (director & violin)

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

With its vivid poetry and technical ingenuity, Vivaldi’s 'Four Seasons' was ground-breaking at the time of its composition and to this day remains as influential and transfixing as ever. In this recording, violinist Kati Debretzeni directs the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment based on the energetic, historically-informed performances given last February when, with renowned choreographer Henri Oguike, the OAE fused authentic performance with contemporary choreography.

The booklet includes a ‘Guided tour of the Four Seasons’, allowing listeners to follow the poetry that inspired Vivaldi as they hear the performances on the disc, including additional composer’s notes from Vivaldi’s own scores. Born in Transylvania, Kati Debretzeni studied with Ora Shiran and Baroque violin with Catherine Mackintosh and Walter Reiter at the Royal College of Music in London. Since the year 2000 she has led the English Baroque Soloists under Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and since 2008 is one of the leaders of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, which she has directed and lead in the UK, Europe and the US. Kati features as soloist on two versions of Bach’s Brandenburg concertos, with the European Brandenburg Ensemble under Trevor Pinnock (Gramophone Award, 2008), and again with the English Baroque Soloists. She has directed from the violin various ensembles in Israel, Poland, Norway, Iceland and the UK, and teaches the Baroque and Classical violin at the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague.

Four Seasons - The Vivaldi Album

Four Seasons - The Vivaldi Album


Vivaldi:

The Four Seasons

Concerto for 3 violins in F major, RV 551


Anne Akiko Meyers is a name that is synonymous with virtuosity, sophistication and beauty. The release of ‘The Four Seasons: The Vivaldi Album’ marks her fourth appearance on the eOne Music label, and this undertaking raises the artistic bar even further that her last release, ‘Air: The Bach Album,’ which spent 4 weeks in the #1 Classical Billboard Chart position, and a total of 28 weeks on the Classical Chart.

While Ms. Meyers happens to be a seasoned professional in the recording studio, her recently acquired violin, the Guarneri del Gesu Vieuxtemps, is not. 273 years after its creation, the fiddle is making its recording debut. This violin, in fact, was created in the same year – 1741 – that Vivaldi died. But the parallels between the GDG Vieuxtemps and Vivaldi do not end there.

Vivaldi, while a household name today, was relatively unknown to the world until a collection of his music was found in an Italian boarding school in 1926. Thanks to the thoughtful and diligent work of a librarian from Turin who reconstructed and preserved the collection of manuscripts, Vivaldi’s music made a resurgence on the concert stage. ‘The Four Seasons,’ which is a featured work on this recording, is, infact, Vivaldi’s most popular work. While Vivaldi’s works were being rediscovered and performed for the first time, the GDG vieuxtemps was about to be put into hibernation, lying dormant under the bed of a violin collector in London. For the better part of 50 years, the instrument was not played in public, nor did it ever receive a commercial recording. Having received a lifetime loan of the fiddle from an anonymous donor in the fall of 2012, Anne has played it around the world. The instrument has debuted in New York’s Carnegie Hall, Detroit, Los Angeles, Estonia, Taiwan and in recordings with the English Chamber Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra. The GDG Vieuxtemps is widely regarded as the finest violin in the world and one of just 150 surviving violins from the hands of this exceptional luthier.

A great part of the success of this recording is due in part to the splendid performances of the English Chamber Orchestra under the baton of maestro David Lockington, in which they are an ideal match for the power and beauty of the soloist and her instrument. The performances of the ‘four seasons’ are spirited and effervescent, with the orchestral tuttis masterfully balanced with the power of the solo instrument. Ms Meyers is playing all three parts of the Concerto RV551 on the GDG Vieuxtemps. The marriage of the three solo parts together results in an amazingly powerful layering of sound. Between the Vivaldi works is a hauntingly beautiful piece by Arvo Part, whose music speaks beautifully with direct simplicity and purity.

Vivaldi: Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione - 12 concerti, Op. 8


I Musici, Felix Ayo

This set of concertos includes those of Op.8 (published as 'Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione', in 1725), dedicated to the Bohemian count Wenzel von Morzin, who from 1719 (at the latest) had been an important patron of the composer, commissioning dozens of concertos from him.

All these concertos are for a single violin soloist, although Nos 9 and 12 first saw life as concertos for oboe - an alternative which remains to this day.

The collection is famous for its seven 'characteristic' (illustrative) concertos, of which the first four are the celebrated 'Four Seasons', complete with their newly-devised accompanying sonnets which were probably authored by Vivaldi himself. Of these 'Four Seasons', the 'Spring' concerto above all enjoyed special popularity during the remainder of the century in France, where the concerto genre had established itself much later than in Italy or Britain.

This famous recording with I Musici was one of the most successful of all time and is proudly reissued by United Classics.
