Classical music is something generally regarded as a ‘right place, right time’ event – ie lovely when you’re concentrating hard on that big piece of work due in tomorrow, but a tad over-dramatic for wandering round a shop, or in a restaurant. Right? Wrong! London’s Classical Takeover is aiming to change all of this. Max Richter’s Recomposition of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons will be being played this week in central London venues that either play no music, or don’t play classical music, including Shoreditch’s Boxpark Mall, Bose, Crabtree and Evelyn, Kipling Regent Street and Hoss Intropia with information handed out by students from the Guildhall School of Music. The whole thing will culminate with a live gig at the Apple Store on Regent Street on October 30, featuring Max Richter himself along with a string ensemble. Listen out on your travels about town.
