Since its founding in 1945, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra has covered a lot of ground, performing on Baroquestyle bows and traditional gut strings in recent years while also looking to the new in its performance of jazz and folk repertoire. Conducting from the violin, Daniel Hope, succeeding his countryman Sir Roger Norrington, leads the ensemble in an unusual pairing of The Four Seasons with composer Max Richter’s Recomposed, an exciting reimagining of Antonio Vivaldi’s Baroque classic.
