THE JOHN KELLY ENSEMBLE

From Bach to Eno, from Miles to Sigur Ros, John takes his classical brief to unexpected places.

This afternoon John plays, in its entirety, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons as Recomposed by Max Richter.

More than a re-mix, Richter opens up the score ‘on a note-by-note level’.

The result is a very familiar piece of music suddenly breath-taking, revelatory and new.
