Max Richter THE BLUE NOTEBOOKS Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
The Blue Notebooks was originally composed in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Richter has described it as "a protest album about Iraq, a mediation on violence both the violence that I had personally experienced around me as a child and the violence of war, at the utter futility of so much armed conflict." The album was recorded about a week after mass protests against the war.
It features readings from Franz Kafka's The Blue Octavo Notebooks and Czesl;aw Mil;osz's Hymn of the Pearl and Unattainable Earth. Both readings are by the British actress Tilda Swinton.
