We announce a new album from the prolific and pioneering composer Max Richter. Exiles features expansive reimaginings of tracks composed by Richter for a Virginia Woolf-inspired ballet, Fendi fashion runways, Hollywood blockbusters, Golden Globe-winning documentaries, and a record loved by David Bowie, as well as Richter’s 33-minute work also named Exiles.
Profoundly moved by the tragedy of the migrant crisis, Richter chose to channel his compassion into a piece for Nederlands Dans Theater. His ballet score Exiles grew from a conversation with the Dutch company’s resident choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot.
The album is set to be released 6 August 2021. Listen to the third pre-release track Infra 5 (Orchestra Version) now.
