Format: Audio CD
Hot-ish on the heels of Recomposed By Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons, modern classical composer Max Richter cements his relationship with the world's oldest classical music label (a label that has become something of a taste-maker in the 21st century) by putting out four, of the five, LPs he recorded originally for the indie label, Fatcat. Why this collection doesn't include all five (the omission is Memoryhouse) is anyone's guess. Also, I suspect you can buy the original four CDs - albeit sans bonus tracks - for cheaper than the price of this set. And that's not the only reason it's overpriced - each disc is a 40 minute, or thereabouts, runtime and the whole thing could have fitted onto two, maybe three at most, discs. But hey, this edition is on Deutsche Grammophon - which means you can impress just about everyone as THE most serious of music fans. Music even your grandfather will approve of.

Like very many people, I first came to Max Richter through his piece "On the Nature of Daylight" (on the soundtrack of Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island [DVD] (2010)) which appears on disc one in two, very similar (good) versions. Sadly, the most arresting version of all - the one with Dinah Washington's "This Bitter Earth" overlaid, doesn't feature, which is a shame perhaps - but only if you don't already own it. If you are coming to this via OTNoD, then you won't be disappointed, although in all honesty (or maybe it's just because of familiarity on my part?

HASH(0xa1e57864) out of 5 stars Outstanding compilation of Richter's work 20 Nov. 2014
By Chicago Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I discovered Max Richter's work through "24 Postcards in Full Color," which was recommended to me by someone who works at one of my favorite record stores. Richter's work is hard to classify: it's been called "neoclassical" or "post-classical," but you really have to listen to samples to get any idea of it. His ability to build beautiful, complex soundscapes that also sound simple is amazing. He doesn't shy away from melody, and I'd say his work is slow in the best possible sense: he creates music that I want to dwell in, and every time I return to it, I hear something new.

I can't adequately describe Richter's work; I can only urge you to try it. Whether you're interested in modern classical music, ambient music, or just intrigued by the idea of hearing what a "classical" composer can do that's new, you owe it to yourself to give Richter a listen.

"Retrospective" is an excellent repackaging of four of Richter's albums, including the hard-to-find and superb "The Blue Notebooks." Duetsche Gramophone has done a wonderful job with the box set, which includes helpful notes and is sturdy enough to last for years. It's a great deal for the price.

If you aren't familiar with Max Richter, he is an incredibly talented, inventive post-classical composer. His music will change your life. If you are familiar with him, you need this collection!

HASH(0xa1e61324) out of 5 stars Decent compilation, ridiculously bad liner notes. 5 May 2015
By Boo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I enjoy Richter's music on a quiet weekend morning, but the more I hear it the more I realize it's really all very similar. Not bad, just similar. This box set is a nice way to obtain his four earlier CDs that are somewhat hard to find now. I have to laugh, however, at the liner notes (mostly reprinted above) which seem to ignore that fact that all four discs sound essentially the same. They are the most pretentious, absurd, and over the top liner notes I have ever read. So much so that I bet Richter even laughs when he reads them, since he above all others realizes what total bulls**t they are. I deduct a star as a penalty for the folks at DG thinking these liner notes added anything at all to the overall quality of this set. They don't.
