Max Richter – Memory House

So I really did not know what to post this time round and instead of racking my brain I threw Itunes on shuffle and decided to let my media player find something that caught my eye. Well, a few clicks of the skip button later and I stumbled upon this little gem of an album.

Perfect for rainy, dark, sombre days is the 18 track journey through trying times and hardship that Richter manufactures with a myriad of instruments and techniques at his disposal. The songs are strongly held together by various themes and motifs while intertwining date stamps as references and a touch of natural recordings including rain amongst other things. The stuningly beautiful ‘November’ builds around a rousing solo slowing melding textures with one another until it bursts at the seams with intensity and grace.
