Description

Originally conceived as a Royal Ballet-commissioned collaboration between composer Max Richter, choreographer Wayne McGregor and artist Julian Opie, Richter's gorgeous score to Infra is deservedly given life of its own in this album-length release. The composition resonates with Richter's characteristic musical voice majestic, involved textures; fluent and sweeping melodies; an enigmatic and inherently intellectual understanding of harmonic complexities that compels and mesmerizes.

I found Max Richter's music through INFRA, which is just incredible. The music on this CD is hauntingly beautiful and so very moving. Its wonderful to listen to both actively and passively in the background (although its hard to not be deeply moved at the same time). If I could give it six stars I would, it is that good!
