Max Richter - Out Of The Dark Room album review

Album Review

Classical master sings Max Richter for the screen

Of all the composers who’ve emerged from the success of Reich, Glass and the so-called ‘minimalist’ movement, perhaps Max Richter has achieved the widest public and critical recognition. Two of his recent projects – the eight-hour Sleep (which also produced a fine remix from Mogwai) and his Vivaldi: Four Seasons Recomposed – havetaken electronic and classical music in fascinating directions. This compilation of Richter’s work for cinema is not only fascinating, but it’s also a fantastic initiation into both his oeuvre and his development as a composer. It reveals both the consistency of his writing and his willingness to work with challenging screen material.
