“Musically incredible and conceptually spot on. Max Richter is truly a modern day musical genius.” The Line of Best

Max Richter's work embodies both the rigor of the classical tradition and the experimentalism of contemporary electronica. Heart-stopping orchestration and mind-bending synthesis co-exist in his work, which is beautifully crafted, intelligent and disarming in its honesty. Inspired equally by Bach, punk rock and ambient electronic music, Richter is radically unafraid of appealing directly to our emotions. 

His output encompasses concert music, operas, ballets, art and video installations and theater and television scores, including Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island; Damon Lindelof’s HBO series The Leftovers; Alan Cumming’s solo version of Macbeth on Broadway; the National Theatre of Scotland’s Black Watch; and his many collaborative ventures with maverick Royal Ballet resident choreographer Wayne McGregor.
