THE CONGRESS soundtrack | ©2014 Milan Records

In the world of modern classical-cum-film composers, few musicians are doing more to stretch sonic boundaries than the German-born, London-located musician named Max Richter.

This attitude of, well, innocence serves INNOCENCE moderately well for the most part. …Read On »
