An hour-long distillation of the eight-hour Sleep, From Sleep was designed by Max Richter to be listened to while awake (he intended the original to enhance a full night's rest and even consulted a neuroscientist about the different phases of sleep). Focusing on some of the work's most actively lovely moments, From Sleep still retains the feeling of an exquisite lullaby. These soft, gliding compositions for piano, strings, electronics and vocals encourage listeners to slow down and reflect in a hectic world, and do so with the same the same aching-yet-inspiring beauty that has graced Richter's work since The Blue Notebooks., Rovi
Another great Album from Max Richter. He is by far my favorite composer, everything he touches is just beautiful to hear.
If human civilization was about to fall, and I could only have one artist to listen too. Max Richter would be my choice. Even if I was on my death bed, and I knew I only had an hour left I would choose his music to be my last.
I am not a classical music fan but I have been following Drone and Amibent music since 1980 (Stars for the Lid, Liquid Mind, Brian Eno, Deuter,etc). I normally don't like real instruments (sorry) but prefer electronic technology to create a vapor of sound. But I really like this recording so much I will check the rest of Max Richter work out. Reminds me of a more quiet Phillip Glass or Steve Reich.
Max Richter's music has always put me to sleep but this one is purposefully so. There are some nice inflections from Medieval or Renaissance music but by and large it's a very pleasant listen with not a whole lot new to it. But maybe I just wasn't made for these times.
