The Zurich Chamber Orchestra visits Berkeley with selections from Max Richter’s Recomposed project. Conducting from the violin, Daniel Hope leads the orchestra in Richter’s reimagined versions of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Richter’s score de- and re-constructs Vivaldi with inspiration drawn from electronic and club music, minimalist concert music, and recording studio techniques, creating a musical universe both familiar and fresh. Complementing Richter’s Vivaldi odyssey, the Zurich players also perform two works for string orchestra—Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro and Mendelssohn’s D minor violin concerto.
Elgar Introduction and Allegro for Strings, Op. 47
Mendelssohn Concerto for Violin and String Orchestra in D minor
