World premiere performance of Max Richter’s Memoryhouse live at the Barbican
Just announced: The world premiere live performance of Max Richter's debut album Memoryhouse at the Barbican on January 24th 2014. Performed by The BBC Symphony Orchestra with live electronics from Max Richter. Conducted by Andre de Ridder.
Memoryhouse may be Max Richter's debut album, but he had been developing his unique mix of contemporary classical and electronics for years before it was released. The album's pieces are rigorously composed but also highly emotive, seamlessly blending into a whole that feels like, well, a memory. Tracks such as "Europe, After the Rain" and "Maria, the Poet" exemplify the album's mix of Glass-style minimalism fused with evocative samples and field recordings.
A homage to Europe and the haunting power of memories, Memoryhouse is a stunning first album that announced Max Richter as a major talent.
