You know how Universal’s Decca label launched a music publishing division last year? Well, it really ought to get round to signing someone. So hurrah, the all new Decca Publishing has signed Max Richter, who has composed music for film, TV and theatre, including Martin Scorsese’s ‘Shutter Island’ and Ari Folman’s ‘Waltz With Bashir’.

Says Richter: “I liked the idea of being the first signing to Decca Music Publishing, as we agreed to take a fresh outlook on how we approach music publishing together, at a time when the rules are changing as to how music can engage with the multidimensional creative landscape of today”.

Natasha Baldwin, who is heading up the Decca Publishing division, adds: “I’m incredibly proud to be working with Max Richter as the first signing to our new publishing division. He is spearheading a new generation of composers in a genre of music that is expanding in global popularity at a phenomenal pace. It’s an exciting time for neo-classical music and I feel privileged to be working at the forefront of this movement with such a visionary composer as Max”.
