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.
