'Spring,' from Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons. Richter says:
As a child, I fell in love with it [The Four Seasons] ... It's beautiful, charming music with a great melody and wonderful colors. Then, later on, as I became more musically aware — literate, studied music and listened to a lot of music — I found it more difficult to love it. We hear it everywhere — when you're on hold, you hear it in the shopping center, in advertising; it's everywhere. For me, the record and the project are trying to reclaim the piece, to fall in love with it again.In another interview, he describes the process as 'writing through it anew – similarly to how scribes once illuminated manuscripts – and thus rediscovering it for myself.'
Finding this video was a lucky hit, loving as I do time-lapse videos of things blooming and the sun moving across the sky. And given snow on the ground here and more snow to come, I am in the right frame of mind for images of speeded-up spring paired with spikily familiar/unfamiliar music.
