Max Richter, one of the most prominent European composers of the last twenty years, is set to make his debut at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus.
Boasting a large fanbase from diverse music genres, as he is not afraid to adopt a Renaissance or Romantic style of music, or incorporate electronic and experimental sounds – he has been variously called a neoclassical or metaminimalist composer –, Richter is noted for his unique personal style; a crossover of many different styles. He has composed music for Great Britain’s Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Nederlands Dans Theater and Ballett Zürich. Furthermore, some of his most well-known and beloved compositions have been included in soundtracks for films such as Waltz with Bashir, Shutter Island and Prometheus. Moreover, he has received numerous awards from the European Music Academy.
Richter will presents two of his recorded works at the Roman Odean: the masterful The Blue Notebooks, a musical meditation on violence and war (2004/2018) that was named one of the greatest classical music works of the 21st century by the Guardian, and the dance-inspired Infra (2010/2014).
