    I adore the fast Violin composition. Is there anyway to get a copy of that music?
    The music is not on I-tunes because I checked. It’s gorgeous. It’s music I would want to wake up to every morning.

    The music is really beautiful. Thanks to the comment above, I downloaded Max Richter’s Spring 1 Recomposed. Where can I find the rest of the music? I’ve been going through all the Max Richter compositions on Apple Music.
