Max Richter has announced a new partnership with Deutsche Grammophon, the world’s oldest classical music label. The new deal encompasses new works and collaborations, as well as the release in April on Deutsche Grammophon of his best-selling solo albums Infra, 24 Postcards in Full Colour, Songs from Before and The Blue Notebooks. In addition, a new recording of Richter’s much-praised orchestral work Memoryhouse will appear in September.
Attention, Attention! A few neat vinyl represses have likely flown under the radar for US readers. The first is Max Richter’s Memoryhouse, which Fat Cat sublabel 130701 is releasing this week as a deluxe 2XLP colored vinyl (limited-edition, of course). Order it here. Also of note, Gustaff Records is repressing Jacaszek’s Treny. If interested, you can try to figure out how to order it here. I haven’t seen any US distributors offering either for sale, so you’ll likely have to stomach the import costs or try your luck in the second-hand market.
Here’s a trailer to the Spanish sci-fi short film Similo. Not only does it look pretty awesome, but readers may be extra intrigued to learn that Similo’s OST features tracks by FORPE favorites Max Richter and Rhian Sheehan. Check out the trailer above!
