originally recorded as an 8 hour piece to fall asleep to, max richter once again proves to the world that he's the best out there for emotion with strings.
1 hour long and stunningly beautiful throughout; it may have been designed to lull the listener to sleep (in richter's own words: "It’s my personal lullaby for a frenetic world.") but it's a phenomenal piece for any time of the day. Richter has proven time and again that he's the best out there for subtlety and beauty in orchestrated music and once again he's produced an enormously beautiful piece without compare.
