Friday Favorites – Max Richter
Today’s Friday Favorite is Max Richter. A truly gifted composer. I first discovered him with his Vivaldi’s Four Seasons “Recomposed”, a brilliant work using the classical composition as source material for a wonderful post-minimal orchestral piece.
Today’s feature is his beautiful and transcendental piece for strings, On the Nature of Daylight. This video shows the piece being recorded. This is one of my favorite pieces of music, period, full stop.
Max Richter has developed a wonderful style that points back to classical composition and forward to ambient electronica. This piece for example uses a synth bass track that is very subtle but really makes the strings shine on top of that.
