Music Performance: Max Richter and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble
October 10, 2018
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall
UMass Amherst Campus
Admirers of Max Richter's music use words like "exquisite," "ravishing," and "bewitching" to describe his compositional voice. From synthesizers to full symphony orchestra, Richter has composed music for solo albums, ballets, concert hall performances, film and television scores, video art installations and theatre works. Joining Richter is the American Contemporary Music Ensemble to perform music from Richter's second album, The Blue Notebooks, and Infra, his collaboration with choreographer Wayne McGregor inspired by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land.
