New Music
Max Richter
with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble performing Infra and music from The Leftovers

Admirers of Max Richter's music use words like "exquisite," "ravishing," and "bewitching" to describe his singular compositional voice. The electro-acoustic composer-pianist, whose work is a ubiquitous presence in dance, film, and television, creates seductively moody scores that reveal themselves with a slow, aching beauty. Here, with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble, a group of "contemporary music dynamos" (NPR), he performs selections from his work Infra, inspired by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, and from his score for the dystopian HBO drama The Leftovers.
