From

German keyboardist, composer, and producer Max Richter joins John Schaefer in the studio. Listen to selections from Max Richter’s recordings over the years, which have just been reissued in the set, “Retrospective.” The enigmatic composer has recomposed Vivaldi, scored dance and films, and produced folk music records. Richter began his career as a founding member of Piano Circus, a group who initially formed to play Steve Reich's Six Pianos. His music incorporates electronic elements and found sounds, and is informed by everything from punk rock to the Beatles to Karlheinz Stockhausen, minimalism, and remix culture. Hear choice highlights from his records, “Memoryhouse,” “Infra,” and “The Blue Notebooks,” along with music from the TV series, “The Leftovers,” and much more.
