Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Tuesday Tunage – Max Richter

“Tuesday Tunage” is a weekly spotlight for music I deem worthy of a spotlight. To make it worth all of our time, I’ll do my best to emphasize tunes you probably haven’t heard before that represent the art in all its glorious varieties.

If Max Richter’s music sounds familiar, you might have heard it in films like Shutter Island or Prometheus. His 2004 album The Blue Notebooks features music inspired by Franz Kafka’s The Blue Octavo Notebooks and provides this week’s featured track.

“The Trees”, begins with a reading from Kafka’s work, but it is the music that follows that you should hear. It is a soundtrack for January; solemn and delicate, it builds steadily bold with a beauty that is cold but undeniable.

I hope you enjoy!
