Review

Neo-classical composer Max Richter was rightly praised for his work on Woolf Works, a three-act Royal Ballet production inspired by the writing of novelist Virginia Woolf. Here, he returns to that score, tweaking it a little to fit onto a single disc. It's an impressive work, with each of the three suites of tracks being based around a different Woolf novel. Musically, it makes use of all of Richter's usual themes - think solo instrumental work, electronic textures, orchestral arrangements, wordless vocals, and so on - and makes use of a rare BBC recording of Woolf reading an essay way back in 1937. Poignantly, it also incorporates a reading of Woolf's suicide note to her husband by Gillian Anderson.
