JOURNEY (CP1919) | Aurora Orchestra

 

Max Richter’s ‘Journey (CP1919)’ – commissioned especially for the Aurora Orchestra’s project and album ‘Music of the Spheres’ is inspired by the discovery of the first pulsar star, CP1919. Richter’s ‘Journey’, uses rhythms governed by the same ratios used by ancient astronomers to describe the orbits of the planets and – inspired by Aurora’s “by heart” projects – Richter created it to be performed by players from memory. ‘Journey (CP1919)’ Listen HERE from Deutsche Grammophon.
