NCH is delighted to announce revered composer Max Richter in concert on Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 October as part of his world tour. His fusion of classical technique and electronic technology has won him legions of fans around the world and blazed a trail for a generation of musicians. On Friday 6 September Max releases his much-anticipated ninth solo album In A Landscape, a 19-track record that began life in summer 2022. For his NCH date, he will perform tracks from this and his lauded 2004 album The Blue Notebooks with his ensemble: Eloisa Fleur Thom and Max Baillie – Violins, Connie Pharoah – Viola and Max Ruisi and Zara Hudson-Kozdoj – Cellos. 
In A Landscape is an album about ‘reconciling polarities’, as Max puts it - bringing together the electronic and the acoustic, the human and the natural world, the big questions of life and the quiet pleasures of living. The album acts as a natural counterweight to the urgent political tenor of his previous projects: Exiles (2021), a ballet score about the refugee crisis and Voices (2022), constructed with a ‘negative orchestra’ and hundreds of readings of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 
In A Landscape employs homogenous musical language to Richter’s seminal album The Blue Notebooks. The two albums in a way bookend this significant chapter of Richter’s life and career. The Blue Notebooks (2004) received widespread acclaim on its release. In 2019, The Guardian ranked it as the 21st greatest work of art music since 2000.  
Over the last two decades, Max Richter has earned a reputation as one of the most prodigious figures on the contemporary music scene, with ground-breaking work as a composer, pianist, producer, and collaborator. Notable projects include a ballet adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s post-apocalyptic MADDADDAM, music for a Mark Rothko retrospective and film and television work including Hostiles, Black Mirror, Taboo – which gained him an Emmy nomination, HBO series The Leftovers and the sci-fi drama Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt. His music is also featured in Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, Ari Folman’s Waltz with Bashir and in the Oscar-winning Arrival by Denis Villeneuve.

Faoin gCeoláras Náisiúnta  
Is institiúid chultúrtha náisiúnta na hÉireann don cheol é an Ceoláras Náisiúnta, a fhreastalaíonn go bródúil ar phobal na hÉireann ó osclaíodh é i 1981 trí thaibhithe ceoil beo agus cláir shuntasacha oideachais agus chultúrtha. Lonnaithe i gcroílár Bhaile Átha Cliath, agus béal dorais le Gairdíní Uíbh Eachach, tá an Ceoláras Náisiúnta bródúil as ár gCeolfhoireann Shiansach Náisiúnta, Cór Siansach Náisiúnta, Cór Linn agus Cór na nÓg chomh maith le háit chónaithe a chur ar fáil do réimse eagraíochtaí ceoil eile lena n-áirítear Cór Aireagail Éireann, Ceolfhoireann Bharócach na hÉireann, Music Network, Crash Ensemble agus Music Generation. Tá sé i gceist faoi láthair athfhorbairt mór á dhéanamh ar na háiseanna go léir mar chuid den Phlean Forbartha Náisiúnta agus de Thionscadal Éireann 2040.
