Max Richter – Recomposed Vivaldi
A modern reimagining of the famous Four Seasons.
A once-in-a-lifetime concert experience. The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to present the magical reimagining of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons by modernist Max Richter. And the performance takes place under the Museum of the Moon.
Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories, and mythologies, as well as highlight the latest moon science.
The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight, and surround-sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programs its own series of lunar-inspired events beneath the moon.
Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations, and live arts projects. Living in the UK but working internationally since 1997, Jerram has created a number of extraordinary art projects which have excited and inspired people around the globe. Jerram has a set of different narratives that make up his practice which are developing in parallel with one another.
He is known worldwide for his large-scale public artworks.
