Composer, pianist, producer, remixer, collaborator extraordinaire, Max Richter graces the Royal Hospital Chelsea stage for a special outdoor performance.

Known as one of the most influential figures on the contemporary music scene, Max has been producing ground-breaking work as a composer, pianist, recording artist and collaborator since the early 2000s.

His combination of the classical with the electronic has been an innovation and heavily inspired like-minded composers such as Nico Muhly, Ólafur Arnalds and Jóhann Jóhannsson. He himself draws from an eclectic mix of music genres and styles, ranging from nineties minimalism, 19th century classical music, contemporary electronics to heavy metal and krautrock. His musical signature has been dubbed post-classical, neoclassical, (post-)minimalist, avant-garde, modernist, electroacoustic ... It only goes to show how Max Richter has shaped the field of contemporary composition. But above all, his work brims with empathy. Emotional expression is of the utmost importance to Richter, as is his socio-political activism. His music touches the very soul whilst presenting a humanist narrative.

Tonight, the show will see the glorious courtyard of the Royal Hospital Chelsea transformed into one of the most stunning and unique concert venues in the country.

Max’s music remains as relevant and inspiring as ever, ensuring that his performance in West London will be a multi-genre masterclass.
