Max Richter - Infra 

Infra, meaning below, was originally a 25 minute ballet, choreographed by Wayne McGregor, inspired by the poem ‘The Wasteland’ by T.S. Elliot. Max Richter, German composer, has extended that to 40 minutes to create this 13 episode piece we have now. Split up into sections, infra and journeys, the piece provokes profound imagery and allows the listener to open up to their innermost thoughts. Rather than providing an escape from reality this piece provides enlightenment on a more spiritual level. Beauty, joy, fear, yearning, regret, hope, happiness, realisation, desolate landscapes, darkness, solitude, this piece will take you through it all.
