For the very first time Deutsche Grammophon releases an essential collection curated by Max Richter. One of the most influential figures of the contemporary music scene, producing ground-breaking work as a recording artist, composer, pianist, and collaborator. Long a staple of the avant-garde, by virtue of his influential solo albums, including The Blue Notebooks, Memoryhouse, Songs From Before, Infra, Vivaldi Recomposed, Three Worlds: Music from Woolf Works and the eight-and-a-half hour epic Sleep. Sold-out overnight performances of Sleep at venues across the world and numerous Classical No. 1 records, are a testament to Richter’s wide appeal. Richter has written widely for film and television with recent projects including Hostiles, Black Mirror, The Leftovers, My Brilliant Friend and Taboo - which gained him an Emmy nomination, and most recently Hostiles, White Boy Rick and Mary Queen of Scots. This essential collection also features music from HBO’s original series hit The Leftovers for the very first time.
