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:

  1. @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.

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

    2. @christopherchelpka I listened to the Bach Cello Suites this morning, great recommendation! Thank you.

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

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

What do you think?
