Max Richter is one of the most influential figures on the contemporary music scene, producing ground-breaking work as a composer, pianist, recording artist and collaborator.
He is best known for his genre-defining solo albums including The Blue Notebooks (named by the Guardian as one of the best classical music works of the 21st Century), Memoryhouse, Songs From Before, Infra, Three Worlds: Music from Woolf Works (both adapted from his previous collaborations with Wayne McGregor) and the eight-hour epic SLEEP (chosen by BBC 6 Music as its Album of the Year, and by Pitchfork magazine as one of the 50 best ambient albums of all time).
His 2012 record Recomposed By Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons topped the classical charts in 22 countries.
“For this piece, inspired by the notion of eternity, I wanted to prolong the experience so that it remains with those who hear it.”
“I very rarely just ‘write music’. I’m trying to tell stories, and I always want to take the listener on a complete journey.”
