Max Richter is one of the United Kingdom’s most gifted and distinctive composers. A graduate of Edinburgh University, The Royal Academy of Music, and a student of the late Luciano Berio, his work is often compared to that of Arvo Part, John Adams, Michael Nyman and Philip Glass. While classically based, his music often incorporates elements from other creative music traditions as well as literary sources, and reflects Max’s overriding interest in personal and political histories, and the transformative power of stories.
After completing his studies Max Richter co-formed the contemporary classical music ensemble, Piano Circus, where he stayed for 10 years commissioning and performing new works and producing five CDs for Decca/Argo. Since then he has worked as a solo recording artist and composer writing for the concert hall, film and TV. Also in demand as a record producer Max has worked with Roni Size, the Future Sound of London and most recently Josephine Oniyama and legendary UK folk singer Vashti Bunyan.
Recent concert music includes The Magic Inside, for Violin and Orchestra, and featuring a new text by Jeannette Winterson, commissioned to commemorate the award of the Nobel Prize for Physics, and premiered by Alexander Balanescu at the Science Museum, London.
Max is currently writing an original score for “Hope” directed by Stanislaw Mucha, scripted by Kieslowski’s longtime collaborator Krzystof Piesiewicz. Further film projects include "SIBERIA" (WT) with Turner Prize Nominee, Darren Almond, and "Waltz With Bahsir", by Ari Folman.
is generally regarded as one the greatest auters of British cinema. More generally known for his cinema features such as "Caravaggio" and "Jubilee", Super 8mm film was Derek Jarman's primary medium in the 70's. Jarman made more than 62 films in a singular poetic style and regarded these works as important as any that he subsequently made on 35mm. For many reasons the films have not been seen widely and this collaboration with Max Richter will help make them accessible to the public. On his death in 1994 Derek Jarman bequeathed his entire archive of Super8 films to his friend and collaborator James Mackay.
