Contemporary composer Max Richter premieres his 2002 debut album Memoryhouse with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by André de Ridder.
An homage to Europe and the haunting power of memories, Memoryhouse is the stunning album that announced Max Richter as a major talent. With echoes of his earlier collaborations with Roni Size and electronic duo FSOL, influences of post-rock acts such as Sigur Rós and classical forebears like Arvo Pärt and Philip Glass, this work shows the unique mix of contemporary classical and electronics that would become the signature language in Richter’s musical universe.
