AN Ac­cring­ton-born com­poser has won a record-break­ing eighth Bri­tish Com­poser Award.

Sir Har­ri­son Birtwistle is one of the lead­ing voices in Bri­tish mu­sic and has col­lab­o­rated with English Na­tional Opera, the Royal Opera House, BBC Proms, Glyn­de­bourne, and many in­ter­na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tions.

He won his eighth award for ‘Deep Time’ which com­pares mu­si­cal pro­cesses to the run­ning of ge­o­log­i­cal time and makes him the most suc­cess­ful com­poser in the award’s his­tory.
