The Anglo-German pianist and composer delivers the second volume of his audiovisual project Voices, launched in 2020 with visual artist and director Yulia Mahr, who has been collaborating with Richter for the past 25 years. The concept of Voices, based on the aspirations of the Declaration of Human Rights, is eminently political, but its message is non-verbal: Voices contains no voices. It is through music that Max Richter tries to set the world to rights, introducing serenity and benevolence, as well as a whole procession of positive emotions in long tracks which move between ambient and neoclassical music. As a student of Brian Eno, one of his acknowledged references, Max Richter has built a series of absolutely fascinating meditative tracks, almost more therapeutic than musical, as if he had found the frequency of peace. Yulia Mahr is unambiguous: “For all its challenges, this moment also offers us an opportunity to build anew; rather than just restarting the old world, we can invent a new one. If we come together, we can create a kinder world.” Let's start by listening to this record. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

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.
