Max Richter

Max Richter

Hailed as the most influential composer of his generation, electro-acoustic polymath Max Richter defies definition: composer he may be, but he is also pianist, producer, remixer, and collaborator, and beyond argument one of the most prolific of contemporary musical artists.

Max Richter creates some of the most powerful and moving music that I've ever heard. I remember first being introduced to his music from the film score of Shutter Island. I really liked that movie, but my god, the film score was just phenomenal. I couldn't get it out of my head, still cant. His music is beautifully haunting and sad. Somehow, it's like a soundtrack to life itself. Had Max Richter been born in the 1750s, I think he would have held his own with the likes of Beethoven and Mozart...he's that good. Below is a playlist of some of his finest work, enjoy...
