High Five: Sleep by Max Richter

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Recently released by Deutsche Grammophon, Richter's composition is the longest single neoclassical piece of music ever recorded, and is intended to be “experienced” while the listener is falling asleep. 



On why he wrote Sleep, Max Richter says: "When I look at my children I wonder where they will find rest. Those moments of being that they used to have as tiny babies, arms outstretched, trusting of the world. I’ve long wanted to write something that might soothe them, so this is my personal lullaby for a frenetic world – a manifesto for a slower pace of existence."



Kinderling will broadcast the full eight hour and thirty minute composition of Sleep, without interruption, beginning at 7pm on Sunday 13 December; repeated each night at the same time until Saturday 19 December.
