- Memoryhouse by Max Richter
9/10 Brian Staff review, 22 October 2009OK. Trying to capture the beauty of Max Richter's work in words is always a toughie. After the majesty of his albums for 130701 - Fat Cat's bob-on classical inspired offshoot, his uber sought-after collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic - 'Memoryhouse' - has been lovingly repackaged & set free on a world bursting with desire for this man's graceful, melancholic & yearning chamber orchestral works. As is the case with many of his other pieces, they largely utilise hugely emotive, sweeping strings & somber piano with occasional field recording embellishment that is so perfectly, subtly poised that even the soft rain heard at the end of 'Europe, After The Rain' stirs nearly as much feeling up in me as the grand, searching strings themselves. I'm no classical academic or even that knowledgeable about such things as music theory but I know good music when I hear it. On occasion I think I'm being treated to Arvo Part collaborating with AFX on an Ambient Works project, this is just absolutely beautiful and like much of his other works, along with many by Chauveau & Tiersen too, I just want to cry with both sorrow & joy half the time at what i'm hearing. 'Sarajevo' will draw out the goosebumps for all those souls who've ever been epically moved by Gorecki's 'Symphony No. 3'! CD only (for t' moment??)
10/10 malachy reilly Customer review, 15th June 2014
Reverential, haunting, elegiac. sad, emotive, exciting, subtle, dynamic, thematic and yet diverse all linked to that one word title Memoryhouse. Beautifully played and recorded.
8/10 Jimbob Customer review, 28th April 2014
We were lucky enough to have free tickets to the live performance at the Barbican recently (thanks to the composers' mother) and that was wonderful - so felt like I wanted to catch up with the album. It is set of evocative music moods and tones, music for films that have never been made ? It often seems like you have heard it before somewhere (not a criticism) or maybe I have over the years on Late Junction. But either way a good place to go.
