Max Richter and Deutsche Grammophon extend partnership3 July 2017
Composer Max Richter and classical label Deutsche Grammophon have extended their long-term partnership with a label for the composer’s film score projects and collaborations.
The imprint, Studio Richter, is another milestone in the label’s partnership with Richter who signed a publishing deal with newly-formed Decca Publishing in April.
Richter said: “I’m very excited to be launching the label. I see Studio Richter as a kind of laboratory – a place to experiment and to discover the unexpected – and I’m happy that I have found a home for it at Deutsche Grammophon.”
The label’s first releases will be Richter’s 2004 work ‘On The Nature of Daylight’ for the film Arrival and his scores for BBC series Taboo. His solo albums will continue to be released under the yellow label Deutsche Grammophon.
Deutsche Grammophon president Clemens Trautmann said: “I am delighted that we will work even more closely with Max Richter in the future. All of us – his label Deutsche Grammophon, his new publisher Decca Publishing, and, obviously, Max himself – will benefit from the expansion of our relationship and the synergies this will create.”
