Introducing EXILES… featuring orchestral versions of some of my early works alongside the soundtrack to Sol Le’on & Paul Lightfoot’s ballet Singuli`ere Odyss’ee, the new album was recorded in Tallinn in 2019 with conductor Kristjan J”arvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic.

Baltic Sea Philharmonic is a really interesting orchestra. It consists of young players from all the nations around the Baltic Sea so that obviously includes former Western European countries, former Eastern European countries, so it’s a little bit of a social project. It has this ‘peacemaking’ function, people being able to talk to each other in a creative way. It struck me that it would be nice to have that orchestra play music that matched that theme.”

After the terrorist attacks in London in 2005 on Infra (2010), the war in Iraq on The Blue Notebooks (2003) and the conflict in Kosovo on Memoryhouse (2002), Max Richter places the migrant crisis at the heart of Exile, released in the middle of summer 2021. Even though his protean work alternates between film music, atypical re-readings of classical pieces, conceptual projects and unexpected collaborations, the German-British composer has always anchored some of his music in reality and in the evils of his time. Here, his commitment is bound up with an unprecedented formal approach. Exile brings together different materials. The central piece that gives the record its title is the ballet music written for the Nederlands Dans Theater company and its resident choreographers Sol Le’on and Paul Lightfoot. Richter’s virtuosity lies in the universality of the themes of this work, which is carried by the harrowing strings of the Baltic Sea Philharmonic conducted by Kristjan J”arvi. Intensity as well as enchantment remain at the centre of this music, which is more influenced than ever by American minimalists like Philip Glass and Steve Reich but also by the Estonian composer Arvo P”art, whom Richter visited during recording…

Exile is rounded off by orchestral versions of some of the older chamber works which are typical of his output: On the Nature of Daylight from The Blue Notebooks, Infra 5 from Infra, The Haunted Ocean from the soundtrack to Waltz with Bashir and Sunlight from Songs from Before. In this symphonic context, Max Richter’s music reveals new hues that the infinite repetition of the motif of the composition Exiles sharpens over the course of the record… Assembled in this way, all this apparently heterogeneous music succeeds in forming a whole. It mirrors the strong identity of this leading force in the contemporary neoclassical scene, a label that provokes much debate. But never mind the bottle, so long as we get drunk: Exile remains a fascinating recording. It offers a combination of sophistication, simplicity and beauty. – Marc Zisman
