HavingĀ recently become the first signee to the new Decca Publishing company, Max Richter has announced that he’s sticking with the also Universal-owned Deutsche Grammophon for his recordings. The deal was sweetened with the promise of his own imprint label, StudioRichter, through which he will release his film scores and collaborations.

“I’m very excited to be launching the label”, says Richter. “I see StudioRichter as a kind of laboratory – a place to experiment and to discover the unexpected – and I’m happy that I have found a home for it at Deutsche Grammophon”.

Deutsche Grammophon President Clemens Trautmann adds: “I am delighted that we will work even more closely with Max Richter in the future. All of us – his label Deutsche Grammophon, his new publisher Decca Publishing, and, obviously, Max himself – will benefit from the expansion of our relationship and the synergies this will create”.

Trautmann continues: “Max’s musical language is so direct and contemporary and this is why he reaches and touches new audiences and has built an impressive fan base. With his oeuvre Max Richter has advanced and enriched what classical music can mean and express today. We are excited to be entering into a new holistic relationship with Max”.
