This double album offers a portrait of the violinist Amandine Beyer drawn from the recordings she has made for ZZT.

The first CD selects highlights from her chamber repertoire, including works by Jean-Féry Rebel, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Nicola Matteis, and Robert de Visée. The second is devoted to the concerto, with compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, and Arcangelo Corelli. This programme is an ideal introduction to the multiple facets of Amandine Beyer’s talent and to the grace and joie de vivre of her music-making. It also provides an opportunity to discover one of Corelli’s Concerti Grossi op.6, a preview of the complete set to be released on ZZT in the autumn of 2013.

“Beyer's playing identifies the variety in national styles admirably.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2014 ****

Christian Danowicz (violin & conductor)

NFM Wrocław Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum

Christian Danowicz was born in Buenos Aires in 1983 and at the age of two moved with his family to France. He graduated with distinction from the Conservatory in Toulouse. He has also studied opera and symphonic conducting under the guidance of Antoni Wit. This ingenious programme draws the music from two very different periods together through their descriptive elements – seasons. Whilst Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is self-explanatory, Piazzolla draws his inspiration from the seasons of the city of Buenos Aires. Baroque meets the Tango, a fascinating combination.

Vivaldi:

The Four Seasons

Recomposed by Max Richter


Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) wrote the four violin concertos known as Le quattro stagioni - “The Four Seasons.” Today The Four Seasons may be the most widely heard piece of classical music ever composed.

Max Richter, the award-winning British composer who has written concert music, film scores, and a series of acclaimed solo albums, has rewritten The Four Seasons with stunning results. Richter’s co-conspirators on Vivaldi Recomposed are Daniel Hope, the British violinist; the German conductor André de Ridder; and the Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin. A former member of the Beaux Arts Trio, Hope is both a notable champion of contemporary music and an exponent of the standard classical repertoire. That makes him the ideal soloist for Richter’s piece.

“I anticipated hating this postmodern reworking of The Four Seasons by the film composer Max Richter. But it is so wittily done that I was gripped, if not quite enchanted.” The Times, 27th October 2012 ****

“Richter slips softly back and forth between writing art music and film scores. Here, Vivaldi's harmonies are slowed to one or two chords per movement and melodic fragments are frozen and filleted” The Independent, 4th November 2012 ***

“Hope and the Berlin Konzerthaus Chamber ORchestra turn in spotless perofrmances of what amounts to a pleasant-sounding yet essentially faceless deconstruction of The Four Seasons” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“Using passages of Vivaldi's material, Richter's reimaginings and remixes by him and others (two good, two not) play games with their source. Beguiling, intriguing fun.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****
