Max Richter - Infra

Format: LP
Availability: Out of stock



Infra is a high-concept project, a ballet inspired by T.S. Eliot's classic poem of yearning and regret, The Waste Land. In turn, Richter's score, which was originally 25 minutes but is expanded to 32 here, was influenced by Schubert's Winterreise. Even in its longer form, many of Infra's pieces are brief, recalling the brilliant miniatures of Richter's ringtone album 24 Postcards in Full Colour. Infra's palette is classic Richter, blending piano, brass, and a string quartet with electronic textures that span luminous washes to ghostly static that lends an alien quality, almost as if the listener is tuning into the score’s frequencies. Like The Waste Land, this music is subtle, its open-ended glimpses adding to its poignancy. This may be the most subdued of Richter's Fat Cat releases, but every nuance shows the care with which he crafts all of his music.
