Sudden Departure Day - Music of the Leftovers
A rare performance of Composer Max Richter's emotive score for Damon Lindelof's cult HBO series The Leftovers.
Richter approaches the show's themes of departure and loss with intimate and achingly beautiful melodies that travel through a psychological and tempestuous landscape with instrumentation of sustained tones, piano, harps and celesta.
"Musically incredible and conceptually spot on. Max Richter is truly a modern day musical genius." The Line Of Best Fit

From synthesizers to full symphony orchestra, Richter has spun a web of innovation to compose music for solo albums, ballets, concert hall performances, film and television scores, video art installations and theatre works.
