MADDADDAM in Toronto

A new ballet premiering in Toronto this November

Continuing his collaboration with award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor, MADDADDAM is a new ballet co-commissioned by the National Ballet of Canada and the Royal Ballet.

Inspired by a dystopian triptych of novels by author Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam, themes of extinction and invention, hubris and humanity are spliced together with aspects of Atwood’s activism and her deep connection to the Canadian landscape, past and present.

The ballet premieres in Toronto 23rd – 30th November.

Recomposed live in Berlin

Max returns to Berlin this December…

For my last performance of the year, I’m taking Recomposed back to where it all began, ten years ago.

It was in my studio in Mitte that I first worked on recomposing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and in Pankow where we recorded the record in 2012 with Daniel Hope.

So it feels special and apt that my final live concert for its anniversary year should be in Berlin.

I’ll also be joined by violinist Elena Urioste, who recorded The New Four Seasons, released earlier this year.

I hope to see some of you there.

Barbican dates just announced

Max performs two special shows exploring ambient music through the orchestra, including pieces never performed before in the UK.

Exploring the idea of the orchestra as a medium for ambient music, rather than electronic instruments, Max has selected pieces that create space to reflect on ideas and feelings. It’s this intersection between the music and the listeners’ biographies that Max is interested in – the way a musical performance becomes conversational. 

The repertoire features six pieces of live music, three being UK premieres – Exiles, Opus 2020, and Testament. Max Richter will be joined by a specially expanded line-up of 12 Ensemble – who’ve previously performed with him at 2018’s Sounds and Visions weekend, alongside Soprano Grace Davidson.
