Max Richter Recomposed: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons
London’s visionary string orchestra 12 Ensemble perform Max Richter’s iconic re-invention of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons alongside his acclaimed On the Nature of Daylight with violinist Eloisa-Fleur Thom.
The 12 Ensemble, led by Artistic Directors Eloisa-Fleur Thom and Max Ruisi, is a pioneering un-conducted string ensemble. Modern, dynamic and virtuosic, the group has rapidly developed a reputation as one of Europe’s most exhilarating collectives, moving audiences worldwide with powerful musical experiences.
The ensemble have collaborated with contemporary artists such as Max Richter, Jonny Greenwood, Nick Cave, Laura Marling, The National, Elena Tonra and choreographer Alexander Whitley. The group recorded on Jonny Greenwood’s soundtrack to the films Spencer and The Power of the Dog. They have released two highly critically-acclaimed albums, Resurrection (2018) and Death and the Maiden (2020) and feature on soprano Mary Bevan’s latest release Visions Illuminées (2023). The group are Artist in Residence at London’s Wigmore Hall for the 23/24 season, and will be releasing their third album in Autumn 2023.
