In a time of narrow specialisations, Noah Max is an exception to prove the modern rule: he began his musical life as a cellist and is now active as both composer and conductor. Either activity would be enough for most young musicians in their mid-twenties, but Max is also a poet, filmmaker and a remarkably accomplished artist. His paintings are explosions of colour and
energy; though they range from the representational to the abstract, they are linked by their sense of spontaneity. My guess is that this spontaneity allows the multiplicity of these talents to blossom and enables Noah’s creativity and relentless productivity to function without inhibition.
Noah Max was born in 1998 and grew up in a household of musicians in North London. His music has been performed at the Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall and the Elgar Room of the Royal Albert Hall in London as well as the Musikverein in Vienna, Uilenburgersjoel Synagogue in Amsterdam and the Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music in Poland. His works have featured in concerts curated by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and Riot Ensemble. In 2021 his string trio Sojourn won The Clements Prize and was performed by members of the Piatti Quartet. Noah’s music is published by United Music Publishing and his debut album Songs of Loneliness was released on Toccata Classics in 2022. World premieres in 2023 include a Flute Concerto entitled Radical Severance (Anna Kondrashina and Echo Ensemble) and his String Quartets No. 2 (Tippett Quartet) and No. 3 (Brompton Quartet, Strad Magazine Premiere of the Month). He will be Composer-in-Residence at Thaxted Festival throughout 2023 and 2024.
Noah Max’s Jewish background forms an important part of his outlook. He has spent the last five years bringing his first opera A Child in Striped Pyjamas to the stage. This undertaking has strengthened his sense of Jewish identity and community. Noah was interviewed about the opera by The Sunday Times Culture, BBC Radio 4’s Today programme and RTE Radio 1; the premiere production sold out six weeks in advance and the piece was excellently-reviewed in the national press.
As a conductor Noah Max has championed contemporary repertoire with Endymion Ensemble at Wigmore Hall, Divertimento Ensemble on tour through northern Italy and with his own Echo Ensemble which – pandemic notwithstanding – gave more than 50 world premieres in 2021.
Noah was a Britten-Pears Young Artist mentored by Marin Alsop, a London Sinfonietta Academist, Assistant Conductor to Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo for their production of Handel’s Theodora at the BBC Proms in 2018 and Young Associate Conductor of Sir Matthew Bourne’s Oliver-winning ballet The Red Shoes in 2019–20.
Noah’s artwork has displayed at the National Portrait Gallery. Fellow composers who have set his poems to music include Ronald Corp OBE, Sarah Frances Jenkins and Zeo Fawcett.

meaning. With an outstanding technical command of the instrument he takes you by the hand to the inner meaning of the works that he interprets” Graham Jackson, Madrid
“István has acquired a flawless technique of the highest professional standard, as well as a superb sound control which he was able to show at an impressive performance of Liszt’s Totentanz for Piano and Orchestra last autumn. Additionally, he has a unique talent for shaping musical structures in the most natural way, understanding and projecting the composer’s intentions with empathy and clarity.

Achim Holub, conductor, London
“Following an impressive curriculum, the young Hungarian pianist István I. Székely left us speechless thanks to a dazzling performance of technical prowess. His performance shone splendidly in virtuosity and he moved his hands with incredible dexterity, delivering clean and clear passages of orchestral sonority. The two works by LISZT that closed the program were the ideal vehicle for István I. Székely to show off his wide range of virtuosic capabilities, which, as we said before, left the faithful audience of the ADOC Auditorium wanting more. They applauded with a standing

Although Walker’s performances of Beethoven have brought him special notice, and his performances of the lyrical and late romantic piano music have also been singled out for the highest praise, it is for his championing of the cause of the neglected leader of ‘The Mighty Handful’, Mili Alexei Balakirev, that he is best known. Described by the Financial Times as ‘the nearest thing to a natural Balakirev performer’, Walker’s two discs of Balakirev piano music for ASV (CD DCA 940 & 1048) received great critical acclaim, and he has also received high praise for his performances of other Russian composers, including his live recording of the Liapunov Sonata on Danacord (DACOCD 539), described by Jeremy Nicholas as ‘thrilling… a tour de force’
