After the terrorist attacks in London in 2005 on Infra (2010), the war in Iraq on The Blue Notebooks (2003) and the conflict in Kosovo on Memoryhouse (2002), Max Richter places the migrant crisis at the heart of Exile, released in the middle of summer 2021. Even though his protean work alternates between film music, atypical re-readings of classical pieces, conceptual projects and unexpected collaborations, the German-British composer has always anchored some of his music in reality and in the evils of his time. Here, his commitment is bound up with an unprecedented formal approach. Exile brings together different materials. The central piece that gives the record its title is the ballet music written for the Nederlands Dans Theater company and its resident choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot. Richter's virtuosity lies in the universality of the themes of this work, which is carried by the harrowing strings of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic conducted by Kristjan Järvi. Intensity as well as enchantment remain at the centre of this music, which is more influenced than ever by American minimalists like Philip Glass and Steve Reich but also by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, whom Richter visited during recording…

Exile is rounded off by orchestral versions of some of the older chamber works which are typical of his output: On the Nature of Daylight from The Blue NotebooksInfra 5 from InfraThe Haunted Ocean from the soundtrack to Waltz with Bashir and Sunlight from Songs from Before. In this symphonic context, Max Richter's music reveals new hues that the infinite repetition of the motif of the composition Exiles sharpens over the course of the record... Assembled in this way, all this apparently heterogeneous music succeeds in forming a whole. It mirrors the strong identity of this leading force in the contemporary neoclassical scene, a label that provokes much debate. But never mind the bottle, so long as we get drunk: Exile remains a fascinating recording. It offers a combination of sophistication, simplicity and beauty. © Marc Zisman / Qobuz

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.

The Paradox of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Studio

Esa-Pekka Salonen is an acclaimed finnish conductor and prolific composer. With over 60 albums under his belt, he has heavily contributed to the history of musical interpretation. This is an interview with an exceptional musician, who discusses his unique approach to working on classical music in the studio.
