Mindful Orchestral: Max Richter

Soaring, complex, enduring pieces make him one of modern classical music’s most important musicians.

From lulling audiences to sleep to raising the roof of symphony halls, this composer has something to offer both the faint-hearted and the sonically-demanding in demonstratively strong measure.

Sleep was a jarring experimental concept record which saw live audiences joining the performance with sleeping bags in cavernous industrial spaces such as Kraftwerk Berlin for intended disruptive sleeping experiences. With Voices 2 he continues his dream of a more balanced world, a meditative and less imposing record, like The Blue Notebooks (feat. Tilda Swinton amongst others), that’s more suited to working or writing.
