“I fell in love with Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons when I was very young. It was one of the few classical records my parents owned and I listened to it constantly. I would line the needle up, wait for the crackle, and sit back as the music flowed magically into the room…. It’s a gateway into the classical music universe. I felt that I had discovered a secret, beautiful world.” – Max Richter
