Max Richter, known as one of the most influential figures on the contemporary music scene, has been producing ground-breaking work as a composer, pianist, recording artist and collaborator since the early 2000s.
He is best known for his genre-defining solo albums, which includes his lauded debut Memoryhouse, The Blue Notebooks (named by the Guardian as one of the best classical music works of the 21st Century), and the eight-hour epic SLEEP, which was chosen by Pitchfork magazine as one of the 50 best ambient albums of all time, as well as by BBC 6 Music as their Album of the Year.
Alongside his critically acclaimed solo albums, Richter also composes music for stage, opera, ballet and screen, with his music being regularly used in cinema. Richter’s music and compositions have appeared in the likes of The Crown, Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders, and Mary Queen of Scots, which won him a Best Original Score for a Feature Film at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
Having achieved millions of streams and one million album sales as of December 2019, Richter’s music remains as relevant and inspiring as ever, ensuring that his performance in West London will be a multi-genre masterclass.
The Live At Chelsea Concert Series will return for its 6th year in 2020, having established itself firmly as a welcome fixture in the summer calendar for many. This is in no small part due to the eclectic range of artists who have been featured previously, including Rufus Wainwright, Simply Red, Ludovico Einaudi, Belle & Sebastian, Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Jones, amongst many more. As well as this, audiences can look forward to the warm welcome from the Chelsea Pensioners themselves.
Every year a portion of the ticket sales from the event is donated towards the care of the Chelsea Pensioners, as well as the maintenance of the Grade I listed site which has provided care and comradeship to ex-military personnel since 1682 when it was founded by King Charles II.
The Live At Chelsea concert series takes in the following dates:
Max Richter – Fri 12th
Roger Hodgson – Sat 13th
The Beach Boys – Sun 14th
