Post-Classical

Post-classical

At the crossroads of Western classical tradition and new forms of musical expression which appeared in the second half of the 20th century, "Post-Classical" is a modern approach to composition proposing a reinterpretation of the codes and structures specific to classical music. Pioneered by figures such as Olafur Arnalds, Max Richter or Philipp Glass, the post-classic spirit is distinguished by its capacity for continuous self-re-invention, flaunting the conventional. Mixing acoustic instruments, digital production techniques, sound design and electronics, the titles on this playlist have poignant intensity, imbued with a dimension which is deeply humane, melancholic and introspective.
