From a re-imagination of a Baroque masterpiece to a pillar of classical ingenuity, Re:Imagination presents creativity from every angle. The evening begins with Max Richter’s Four Seasons Recomposed, inviting listeners to fall in love with Vivaldi’s timeless Four Seasons once again through a modern musical lens. Set to a tonal and slow-moving harmonic accompaniment, the work falls somewhere between the Baroque and 21st century, with hints of electronic music, phase music, and tintinnabulation. Closing the concert is Schubert’s youthful and breezy Symphony No. 5 in Bb Major. Mozartian in its light instrumentation and enduring melodic content, the tuneful evocation of the Austrian countryside makes the dramatic peaks of the work all the more ebullient when they appear.
