Recently released by Deutsche Grammophon, Max 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 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, from 8pm nightly during our Week of Sleep, 23-29 July.
