Simple but sublime, Max Richter’s minimalist style makes him one of the most popular composers alive today. On the 'Nature of Daylight' is a strikingly beautiful piece, cinematic enough to be used in films such as 'Shutter Island' and 'Arrival'.
Composed during a winter spent in Italy, Sibelius’ Second Symphony is another meditative work from the enigmatic Finnish composer.
Quiet and simple to begin with, it melts into some of his warmest music before rising to a glorious, expansive finale. Something Sibelius would later declare “a confession of the soul.”
