Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The music of Max Richter is worth getting to know.
His fifth album 'Infra' is incandescently beautiful.
The soundscapes he has created in these thirteen exquisite
miniatures display an extraordinarily affecting interiority.
(Infra = below, beneath and within). Reflective, mesmeric
and utterly captivating, they engage both our intellect and
our emotions in equal measure. Essential sounds.

Piano, string quintet and subtle electronics are employed in hugely
rich and varied formations. The melodic and harmonic structure of
the arrangements seamlessly juxtaposes familiar tonal modalities with
the evocative and sometimes abrasive (but always complementary)
technological intrusions. The marriage is a magical one.

Conceived as music for a Royal Ballet commission ( a collaboration
with choreographer William McGregor) the compositions are romantic,
elgiac and easily approachable. The programatic format is suggestive
of a quest without a clear destination : 'Infra 1-8' interspersed with
'Journey(s)' 1-5'. Mr Richter is a gentle guide in unfamiliar territory.

It would seem somehow ignoble to dissect the whole in an attempt
to describe its parts. The sum total is simply sublime.
(That it was recorded in just one day at AIR studios in
London is an impressive testament to both the composer's
and performers' stamina, determination and vision!)

Music for the spirit in a godless age.

Essential.

Get this album in your headphones and walk through a big city at evening rush hour preferably on a dark, cold night, this is what this music was designed for it is a meditation on humanity, on disconnection and isolation but with a wonderful undercurrent of hope. I saw it performed live and it(along with the animations) was profoundly moving. Richter has written a soundtrack to modern life and their are fewer finer pieces of music out there in my opinion.

More a sound poem that out and out music. Good as background, and good to really listen hard to, there is so much in it.
