Max Richter has rejigged his alliance with Universal Music. His recordings of new works will be released through the major’s London-based Decca division, which already works with the composer on his publishing. Those records will be released by the Decca team under the existing ‘Studio Richter’ imprint.

However, Richter will also continue his relationship with Universal’s Deutsche Grammophon label, which will still create albums with Richter featuring newly recorded versions of his existing works and reimaginations of classical pieces. What a party!

Says Decca President Rebecca Allen: “The Decca Label Group are incredibly excited and proud to be partnering up with Max and his Studio Richter team, helping to strategise, amplify and visualise his future music projects globally. Like Max, we have always strived to break down genre boundaries and, with this exciting new partnership, we feel empowered and ambitious to bring new audiences into the ongoing Richter journey”.

Deutsche Grammophon boss Clemens Trautmann adds: “We are privileged to continue our successful partnership well into the future with a series of recordings, audiovisual projects and catalogue curation, building on more than one million albums sold. As a collaborative effort within Universal Music Group on both Max’s recording and publishing activities, DG will ensure his work continues to excite and move an increasing global audience”.
