Vivaldi’s Summer 3, spiced up

I’m listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (well, a version of it anyway) while I work through exercises in Learn Python 3 the Hard Way, and I really like how Vivaldi’s Summer 3 has been tweaked in the album “Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons“.

Here’s a fairly typical rendition of this track:

Now, here’s the Max Richter and Co version:

On a related note, this is a beautiful version of Autumn 3, too:

    @pauljacobson Thanks for sharing. This is now the second “recomposed” work I know of. Have you heard the Bach Cello Suites by Peter Gregson? I bet you’d like them.

      @christopherchelpka I think I may have listened to that. It sounds familiar. I’ll check it out!

    @pauljacobson my husband introduced me to Richter through Sleep and he’s been one of my favorite new artists since.

      I feel like I need to listen to more of his work while I work. Any other suggestions @koritsimou?

    @pauljacobson he does a whole lot of tv/film work that’s very evocative and worth a listen even if you don’t see the show/movie. On The Nature of Daylight is pretty good too.

    @pauljacobson also if you like Max try Library Tapes.

      @koritsimou Thank you for the suggestion, I’ll try some of their work too!
