Voyager - Essential Max Richter

Voyager - Essential Max Richter is a career-spanning retrospective by the German-born composer. Not only is this the essential stuff from Richter’s impressive career so far, but it’s pretty essential for any record collection too. It includes excerpts from his reworking of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons along with scores from TV and film soundtracks such as The Leftovers, The Blue Notebooks and Mary Queen of Scots. A good place to start discovering Max Richter.

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks - 15 Years (Record Store Day Edition)

The Blue Notebooks is Max Richter’s Iraq war protest album. He began writing the album in 2003 when tensions were rising - and boiling over - in the country.

Limited edition blue coloured vinyl 2LP on Deutsche Grammophon. Comes in a stickered PVC sleeve - note the stickering may look torn or cut - this is intentional as each copy is unique.

La Prima Linea

Max Richter has the chops to soundtrack any film you can throw at him, and this 70’s Italian terrorism drama is no exception, even if that setting might seem quite far from usual Richter territory. That stately style brings out the melancholy strains of the story, and the melodies will live on in the mind long after the film has faded from the screen.

Max Richter

Never Look Away (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Already binged your way through both Deutschland 83 and Deutschland 86? Then you might wish to try Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck’s 2018 flick Never Look Away, another masterpiece of contemporary cinema that sees Germany coming to terms with its past. It was was nominated for two Academy Awards you know. Max Richter did the score in his classic nicey-nicey cine-strings style, and his Never Look Away OST is what we have for you here.

Max Richter
Mary Queen of Scots (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ever look at the current British political miasma and imagine how differently things might have turned out if Mary Stuart had been allowed to take the English throne back in the 16th Century? Well, now you don’t have to! New blockbuster flick Mary Queen Of Scots follows the highs and lows (there were more lows) of Mary’s relationship/rivalry with Queen Elizabeth. Max Richter (The Blue Notebooks, Guerrilla) has done the score, which is what we have here. It’s yer regular Richter fare, all sawing strings and Michael Nyman-ish chamber vibes.

Max Richter
from SLEEP

A record surely made with our Phil in mind. If anyone can get him to sleep it will be Max Richter. Richter has written what is thought to be the longest piece of classical music and you are supposed to listen to it when you are asleep  - if such thing is possible. The work is being released in its entirety in digital form but of course you can't squeeze that onto CD or vinyl so these are one hour adaptations of the work. Certainly you'll need to be awake for the vinyl version otherwise the needle will just get snagged in the run out groove. 

Max Richter
Taboo

Taboo is hardly the word that springs to mind when we think of esteemed contemporary composer Max Richter, but his loveliness persists here in a score of stakes-raising tension. The soundtrack was made for the eponymous TV show about the mysterious time of 1814, which was a long time ago.  

Max Richter
Sleep Remixes

Extracts from Max Richter’s epic 8-hour ambient composition get the remix treatment from an array of fresh producers and artists. Clark, Mogwai and Jürgen Müller are amongst the names, and they offer the listener the opportunity to hear what some of this material would be like if stripped of the need to promote sleep. Limited LP on Deutsche Grammophon.

Max Richter
White Boy Rick (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

So. He's only done it again, hasn't he? Another stellar soundtrack work under the expanding belt of Max von Richie Richter. This time, it's 'White Boy Rick (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)'. The music accompanies a story in the film where the teenage Richard in the title becomes an undercover FBI informant and gets banged up for trafficking drugs. Richter continues a long tradition in serious instrumental, orchestral and electronic music composed for telly and The Pictures. Sounds interesting.

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks (15th Anniversary Edition)

Written in 2003 as a response to the invasion of Iraq, Max Richter’s The Blue Notebooks has become a seminal piece of classical protest music, in part due to its use in films such as Shutter Island and Waltz With Bashir. It’s a stirring work that hovers between electroacoustic music, Neo-Classical composition and electronica. The overall effect is beautiful, angry and sad. Deutsche Grammophon have repackaged the album for its fifteenth anniversary. It now comes with a second disc of bonus tracks, re-arrangements, and remixes from Jlin and Konx-Om-Pax.

Max Richter
Hostiles (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

You sure can count on Max Richter to deliver works of sweeping cinematic power, and so it's no surprise that he has increasingly been composing music for actual cinema. Hostiles, a film set in the violent Wild West of the late 1800’s, gets a big dramatic blockbuster score that alternates between lush orchestrals and tense percussives.

Max Richter
Disconnect (Music From The Motion Picture)

More excellent compositional score-work from Max Richter, this time to accompany the 2012 what-if-internet-but-too-much drama film Disconnect. As well as Richter’s punchy original compositions, this OST collection also includes Jayme Ivision’s song Ni Su Nave. CD released by the Milan label.

Max Richter
Nose Dive - Black Mirror

Funny that Charlie Brooker, who started out writing stunningly rude parody TV listings, is now in a position to be commissioning Max Richter to provide soundtracks for his big budget TV series. Well he is, and here is said Richter’s dark cinematic accompaniment to the Nosedive episode of Black Mirror. Presented by Deutsche Grammophon.

Max Richter
Henry May Long

Max Richter’s score to Randy Sharp’s 19th century drama Henry May Long (2008). Richter’s softly dramatic compositions match a tale of self-discovery and self-destruction. Originally only released digitally through Mute, Deutsche Grammophon have brought it into the physical realm on CD and LP.

Max Richter
On The Nature Of Daylight – Music From The Film 'Arrival'

On The Nature Of Daylight is a track from Max Richter’s much-loved 2003 album The Blue Notebooks, where it stands out as an especially delicate and emotional piece. It was recently used in the firm Arrival, in a new version. This 12” on Max’s new label StudioRichter includes both the original string quintet version and the new string orchestra version.

Max Richter
Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works

Busy old Max Richter’s latest musical project is the accompaniment to a ballet production that adapts and re-contextualises various works of Virginia Woolf. Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works is the first opportunity to hear this new Richter outside of the Royal Ballet, and the standard of composition is typically high. CD on Deutsche Grammophon.

Behind The Counter With Max Richter

Who wants to sneak inside Max Richter’s world? I’m pretty sure Phil does and he’ll enjoy this compilation of some of Max’s favourite works both recent and distant.  As you can imagine there’s a heavy classical, neo classical tinge to this but it also includes work by Boards of Canada and Let’s Eat Grandma. 

Max Richter
SLEEP

You’ve heard the excerpted album version, now hear the full-length total version: the full 8 hours of Max Richter’s SLEEP. The idea is that listeners will put this on and have it play while they sleep and dream: consequently, the music is quiet, slow, and beautiful. Presented by Deutsche Grammophon on 8CDs and as a Blu-Ray that will play continuously.

Max Richter
Out Of The Dark Room

Out Of The Dark Room is a collection of Max Richter’s works for film, hence taking these delicate soundtracks out of the dark room on the cinema and into the light of your stereo. Music excerpted from the soundtracks of Waltz With Bashir, Testament Of Youth, Wadjda and several more. CD released by Editions Milan.

Max Richter
Perfect Sense (Original Film Soundtrack)

Richter has been getting his toes right under that soundtrack table of late and rightly so, his music is a perfect fix for any tear drenched movie experience. This is a release of the 2011 science fiction drama which starred none other than Ewan McGregor. Expect heartbroken pianos and cellos weeping.    

Max Richter
The Last Days On Mars - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Max Richter has always captured a certain haunting and melancholy place in our hearts. Most of Max's music is released on Deutsche Grammophon, the oldest record label in the world, and not without reason. His music sounds like it's been unearthed from a time capsule buried by a lonely composer from the first half of this century. And just like those phenomenal solo albums, the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to 2013’s The Last Days on Mars is filled with beautiful and sparse modern classical tracks.

Max Richter / Daniel Hope
Berlin by Overnight

Violinist Daniel Hope released his newest record, 'Spheres', in 2013; he is soon to be joined by neo-classical icon Max Richter for a live interpretation of this work at the Royal Albert Hall, and Deutsche Grammophon are marking the occasion with this EP of remixes. The twilight vibe of 'Spheres' is captured on 'Berlin by Overnight' with reworks from the artists Lorna Dune, Tom Adams, Efdemin and CFC.

Max Richter
The Leftovers - Music From The HBO Series - Season One

Famous for his subtle and emotional modern classical albums, Max Richter is also renowned in the score writing business. His latest efforts for the Leftovers are striking as always, focusing on minimal piano tracks accompanied by the subtlest of strings. With careful themes, Richter creates entire worlds of sound.

Max Richter
The Congress OST

Based on the novel “The Futurological Congress” by Stenislaw Lem (1971), this futuristic partial animated film explores the stakes of our digital world, its dehumanisation and man’s obsession with chemical substances.   Max Richter composed for “The Congress” a wonderful dreamlike classical score, which perfectly fits the animated, dreamy and hallucinogenic mood of the picture.  In addition, there are two classical pieces by Schubert (“Trio in E-Flat Major, D. 929”) and Chopin (“Nocturne Op. 27/1 in C# minor) along with two marvellous covers of Robin Wright performing Leonard’s Cohen “If It Be Your Will” and Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”.

Max Richter
Infra

Infra is the third of Max Richter’s albums to receive the honour of a release by the extremely legitimate Deutsche Grammophon label. Originally released by Fat Cat in 2010, Infra is an evolution of a ballet accompaniment piece about the 7/7 London bombings, and consequently has a fairly potent emotional core. Plenty to feel here in these spiralling arrangements.

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks

Max Richter stands at the forefront of the modern classical movement that has enjoyed prominence for most of this century. The delicate, emotionally arresting compositions on his second album confirmed his status, and are here re-released with updated artwork on LP and CD, sounding just as wonderful as before.

Max Richter
Songs From Before

Max Richter does his Max Richter thing on 2006’s Songs From Before. Aided by some cello and bass, Richter tinkles ivories, mixes and produces on this record to end up with a dozen pleasant contemporary classical vignettes. That voice you hear cropping up from time to time on Songs From Before is Robert Wyatt, by the way - he reads extracts from various Haruki Murakami books throughout the album.
