Recomposed? is this a good word?
This recording is an enjoyable, unchallenging, easy listening remix of this well loved classic, provided you like that Philip Glass style filmic sound.
Certainly no classic if truth be told, not really very original and certainly no hint of genius. Recomposed? hmm, nothing too clever here, it's all a bit safe & obvious but nice and pleasant floaty music nonetheless.
Many people will hate this, Richter will certainly not convert purists.
This feels like an enjoyable film score rather than a serious musical reinvention. I can imagine this as background music for a Stephen Poliakoff play.
