Omega Ensemble | Re: Classical
Presented by Omega Ensemble
The past reconsidered and present reconfigured.
Max Richter’s chart-topping global sensation, Four Seasons Recomposed, leads this performance of groundbreaking classical music from Australia’s most exciting and forward-thinking chamber music group.
One of the highest-selling classical music recordings of all time, acclaimed composer and innovator Richter expertly retouches, reworks, and reimagines Vivaldi's Four Seasons masterwork, resulting in a transformative experience that sounds entirely new, and yet satisfyingly full of familiar delights.
This foot-stomping performance also includes a world premiere by leading American composer Jessie Montgomery, whose infectious music celebrates dance and movement, and Elena Kats-Chernin’s Clarinet Concerto ‘Ornamental Air’ reimagined in a bold new version for Omega Ensemble and clarinettist David Rowden, packed with virtuosic arpeggios and relentless rhythmic energy.
