Max Richter / The 12 Ensemble
Composer, pianist, producer, remixer...Max Richter is one of the most prolific musicians of his generation. Inspired equally by the Beatles and Bach, by punk rock and ambient music, he combines the beauty of baroque with the methodology of minimalism, and classical orchestration with modern technology. His music has been utilized in more than thirty films and trailers by such names as Ari Folman (Valse avec Bachir), Martin Scorsese (Shutter Island) and Clint Eastwood (J. Edgar). In 2015 he performed SLEEP, a post-minimalist, eight-hour-long lullaby destined for an audience lying down on cots and air mattresses!
