Max Richter The Blue Notebooks Limited 180gram Vinyl LP + CD

Overview:
‘’One of the most affecting and universal contemporary classical records in recent memory.” Pitchfork (USA). Max Richter’s DG Catalogue was offered in a deluxe 4-CD set, Retrospective, earlier this year. Now his second album is presented in 180 g vinyl along with a parallel release on CD. The Blue Notebooks was Max Richter's second solo album, a distinctive and adventurous work that is beautifully recorded and cinematic in scope. Opening with a text from Franz Kafka over a sparse piano melody, the album moves through heart-wrenching strings of “On The Nature Of Daylight” to lyrical piano pieces. Using piano, cello, violin and viola, alongside electronic beats (made using a variety of antique electronics and Reaktor), spoken word passages and the occasional field recording (including a very realistic crow that you probably think comes from your garden); other sounds were generated via old guitar pedals and vocoders.
