Jóhann Jóhannsson
Virðulegu forsetar

Don’t be fooled by the fact that ‘Virðulegu Forsetar’, which translates as ‘Honorable Presidents’ for those who’ve forgotten their GCSE Icelandic, is listed as being in four parts - the division of this hour-long work into quarters is purely for technical reasons. Taken as a whole this is beatific and gorgeous stuff from the late Jóhann Jóhannsson, a droning brass-led ambience that combines Steve Reich’s phasing techniques with the cerebral bliss of Arvo Pärt.

Voyager - Essential Max Richter

Voyager - Essential Max Richter is a career-spanning retrospective by the German-born composer.

Víkingur Ólafsson
Bach Reworks

Víkingur Ólafsson’s Bach Reworks is an intriguing and moving set of contemporary classical compositions. The pianist’s second LP for Deutsche Grammophon sees him interpreting the music of composers such as Ben Frost and Hans-Joachim Roedelius as they in turn attempt to spring something new from the inimitable repertoire of Johann Sebastian Bach. Nestled among the track list of Bach Reworks is a tender tribute to Ólafsson’s late friend Jóhann Jóhannsson.

Joep Beving
Henosis

Deutsche Grammophon release the third in Joep Beving's personal trilogy. Henosis is a fantastically start example of minimalism. Its heart is found in the piano Beving uses, originally his grandmother's. This makes for a record that is resonant both in the literal sense, and in the emotional one. For the first time though, Beving is not completely alone.
  • CD (4835209)

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Arrival (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Jóhann Jóhannsson is known for his modern composition skills, often working with stately piano and subtle electronics. But for his original soundtrack to the big new film Arrival, he follows the plot’s lead by centering his compositions around the voice. The results can sometimes recall Holly Herndon relocated to a dramatic orchestral context: e.g. really rather interesting. CD release 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
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.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
The Mercy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Aside from his solo output and numerous collaborations, Jóhann Jóhannsson has been growing a long list of film scores, including Arrival, Prisoners, and The Theory Of Everything.

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.

Conatus

Conatus: in which Joep Beving hands over pieces of his contemporary classical music to various artists for reworking.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Orphée

Night in with some wine for this one. One of the greats of modern classical, Johann Johannsson, returns with a new studio album after 6 years of soundtracks and collaborative efforts.

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Englabörn & Variations

Ah this is sad. Johann Johannsson was personally involved with the preparation of this re-issue of his debut album in the weeks before his untimely death.  After consultation with his family it's been decided that the re-issue should go ahead and this works as a lovely tribute to the man. It now comes re-mastered and with a bonus set of re-workings some by Johannsson himself.   
  • CD (4799841)

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.

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.

Gustavo Santaolalla
The Motorcycle Diaries (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Che Guevara biopic The Motorcycle Diaries enjoyed huge success when it was released in 2004. This extended to its soundtrack - the score by decorated Argentinian composer Gustavo Santaolalla won a BAFTA, and Jorge Drexler’s closing number ‘Al otro lado del rio’ took home an Academy Award. Santaolalla’s music is an evocative mix of native Latin American styles, modern Hollywood sound art and open-road blues guitar, and Drexler turns in a poignant folk-rock number.

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.

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.

Joep Beving
Solipsism

Joep Beving composes and performs pieces for piano with a delicacy and a sense of stateliness that puts him right in there with the likes of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds. Solipsism, his debut, was recorded in the middle of the night for extra depth of feeling: this is neo-classical piano of the most relaxing sort. Originally released on On I Are Giant and now reissued by Deutsche Grammophon.

SLEEP

You’ve heard the excerpted album version, now hear the full-length total version: the full 8 hours of Max Richter’s SLEEP.

Presented by Deutsche Grammophon on 8CDs and as a Blu-Ray that will play continuously.

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.
