DECCA PUBLISHING WELCOMES MAX RICHTER


Here you’ll find composer Max Richter after signing to the newly launched Decca Publishing, flanked by UMG U.K. boss David Joseph, pubco SVP Natasha Baldwin, Decca President Dickon Stainer and manager Steve Abott. Following a celebratory lunch at The Ivy Kensington, the group climbed aboard an open-top bus to witness the Changing of the Guard.

The deal with Decca marks the start of a major new partnership, which aims to further widen the appeal of Richter through creative and commercial opportunities. He's signed as a recording artist to Universal’s Deutsche Grammophon label.

Said Joseph: “Max Richter is one of the most important composers working today and we are looking forward to bringing his remarkable music to a wider audience with this ambitious new collaboration.”

Baldwin added: “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.”

Richter’s output can be heard in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, Ari Folman’s award-winning Waltz with Bashir, Oscar-winning sci-fi film Arrival, plus Charlie Brooker’s TV show Black Mirror, Tom Hardy’s BBC drama Taboo and HBO’s The Leftovers. He has also composed for theatre productions, art collaborations, and multiple ballet projects.
