Musical Masterpieces Recomposed

Only a month and a half ago I heard a new recording of Bach’s Cello Suites, which had been “recomposed” and performed by Peter Gregson. And now this, thanks to @pauljacobson, a recomposed version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons by Max Richter!

So I guess this is thing, at least at Deutsche Grammophon, the label behind both albums. Are there other examples of this?

I have a lot of writing to do today and look forward to re/listening to both these albums.
