Listen to this soundfile first: Antonio Vivaldi, Violin Concerto “Spring / La Primavera” in E major, Op. 8 [COVERED IN CHAPTER 27] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPaUtnJTMn8&feature=youtu.be
Listen to this soundfile second: Max Richter, Spring, Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi – The Four Seasons
TOPIC: After listening to the two soundfiles above, discuss whether or not Max Richter has the RIGHT to “recompose” Antonio Vivaldi’s beloved The Four Seasons? Back your stance by informing the reader of why you think it works or doesn’t. Do you think masterworks are untouchable? Can you think of any other instances of “recomposed” music? (name one or two) Was the “recomposition” successful or not? [Note: “Recomposition” is different from remixing (or standard arranging) a song in that the “borrowed” musical material is reassembled and revisioned in a significant way.]
