Blending classical, electronic and rock influences, Max Richter calls his style “post-classical.” Hear his haunting, beautiful music featured in Shutter Island and Arrival in an evening featuring Infra and excerpts from The Blue Notebooks. Max will be joined by a narrator and ACME, an electro-acoustic chamber ensemble comprised of piano, electronics and a string quintet!
“A modern-day musical genius.” – The New York Times
About the Program
Infra is inspired by T.S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land” and resonates with Richter’s characteristic minimalism combined with sweeping melodies and harmonic complexity that Pitchfork calls “achingly gorgeous.”
The Blue Notebooks mixes contemporary classical compositions with electronic elements and features excerpts with narration from Kafka’s The Blue Octavo Notebooks. Hear an excerpt from the work.
