Max Richter, hailed by many as the most influential composer of his
generation, will perform a UK exclusive concert at this summer’s Nocturne series,
which returns to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire in June.
Richter will perform alongside Aurora Orchestra featuring acclaimed violinist/director Ray Chen in the Palace’s Great Court on Friday June 16th to perform music from his acclaimed Vivaldi Recomposed project, a reworking of Vivaldi’s timeless masterpiece, as well as a performance of ‘On The Nature Of Daylight’, which features in the nine-time Bafta nominated sci-fi film Arrival, and the world premiere of his brand new project Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works. Drawn from his music to Wayne McGregor’s award-winning Royal Ballet production Woolf Works, this new project is inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf and is built around themes from three of her novels: Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves.
The Nocturne Concert Arena will be open from 4:30pm, music starts at 7:30pm and will finish at 10:30pm. There will be one 45 minute interval.Tickets are on sale now.
