- REFLEKTOR festival co-curated with Yulia Mahr
- A Global live stream of 8.5 hour SLEEP
- Welsh & German premiere of VOICES: a soundtrack to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Following Max Richter’s return to the stage in London for a sold out performance of VOICES at Crystal Palace Bowl, comes a festival co-curation and a series of performances featuring a range of projects from his pioneering catalogue.
These live dates follow a busy Spring/Summer, which has already included releasing the albums VOICES 2 and EXILES… with more projects to follow before the end of the year.
Max Richter and Yulia Mahr are thrilled to announce the programme for their latest festival bill. Following in the footsteps of previous curators such as The National’s Bryce Dessner and Nils Frahm, the musician and multidisciplinary artist have selected a range of acts from around the world to join them in Hamburg from October 6th-10th.
The event takes place in the glorious Elbphilharmonie concert halls, and will feature performances from Max, a new installation by Yulia Mahr, plus Jlin, Portico Quartet, Sarah Davachi, Shida Shahabi, Daniel Brandt, Starry Sky Cycle, Julius Eastman, Kali Malone, Pamela Z, Jason Moran & Christian McBride, and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble. https://www.elbphilharmonie.de/en/festivals/reflektor-max-richter/692
