Very Good, Based on 1 Critic
Pitchfork - 68 Based on rating 6.8/10
"The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi have been balled up, stretched, flattened. They have been remixed, rewritten, "reimagined," deconstructed: Whatever interpretive violence can be done to a piece of music has been visited upon these four drearily familiar little concerti composed in the 18th century. The same way that hip new restaurants tee up to offer their spin on the hamburger, modern composers will turn to "The Four Seasons" to demonstrate the extent of their daring on its blank canvas.
