Though the eight-hour work Sleep is one of the longest single pieces of classical music ever composed and the audience at its premiere were given beds instead of seats, Max Richter's intentions for the work were anything but sensational. Describing it as “an eight-hour personal lullaby for a frenetic world and a manifesto for a slower pace of existence," he consulted neuroscientist David Eagleman as he worked on these soft, gliding compositions for piano, strings, electronics and vocals, taking into account the nuances of dreaming sleep and deep sleep. Designed to be listened to while asleep, the low drones that wind through the work encourage a phase of sleep that consolidates memory and learning -- a process that might seem as thrilling as defragmenting a hard drive, but in Richter's hands, has the same aching-yet-inspiring beauty that has graced his work since The Blue Notebooks.

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 Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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.
