You need to see the video for 'On The Nature of Daylight' from Richter's re-released version of The Blue Notebooks.
Stunning in its simplicity, this brand-new video for one of Max Richter's most enduring compositions features the star of The Handmaid's Tale and Mad Men, Elisabeth Moss. Oh, and she also gets a producer credit.
In the quietly devastating six-minute video, we see Moss do A LOT of walking, accompanied by Richter's elemental, elegiac string arrangement. And then, well, there's a climax. Prepare yourselves, that's all we'll say.
Richter's album The Blue Notebooks originally came out back in 2004, but now it's having an overdue (and extensive) re-issue thanks to Deutsche Grammophon.
