Max Richter

Max Richter released his new album, Recomposed By Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons, this past August and it's been getting a lot of praise in the modern classical world. As the title states, it's a re-imagining of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, and you can check it out below via a Spotify widget.
