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.

9/10 Phil Staff review, 13 November 2008

The neo-classical album I'm most fond of is this Max Richter LP on Fat Cat. He's a composer chappie who's had stuff out on BBC Recordings before so I'm told and this is just lush. Mainly consisting of pianos and strings it's just some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.  It's very maudlin and it reminds me of the music from Being John Malkovitch film in places.

Classical music with some electronics........ it makes me weep it's so beautiful. Defo for fans of Yann Tiersen.....Even Brian who is the mental electro gabba nutter in the office is warmed by these melancholic treats. To quote Jimmy Kranky.. it's fan daby dozy. This is by far the best album of 2004. Hands down. It's probably the best album of 2005 as well...


10/10 James Clarke Customer review,

A conversation with Max Richter.

Interviewer:

So then Max, you're music incorporates influences from the likes of modern composers such as Cage, Reich, and Xenakis. You use these post-modern influences and juxtaposition them with much more traditional classical structure to create a sound that you describe as 'post-classical'. It is both harrowingly beautiful and deeply emotive, a pallet of heavenly and gorgeous tones and hues, it paints a melancholy landscape that enraptures every possible sense of love and loss. What do you have to say to such comment?

Max:

I like sounds!
