BACK­GROUND TO… Ed­mund Fin­nis (b1984)

BBC Music Magazine - - Reviews -

Fin­nis has es­tab­lished him­self as one of the UK’S most ver­sa­tile com­posers. Born in Ox­ford, he stud­ied with Ju­lian Anderson at the Guild­hall and has en­joyed cre­ative col­lab­o­ra­tions with the Brit­ten Sin­fo­nia, London Sin­foni­etta and London Con­tem­po­rary Or­ches­tra (for which he was com­poser-in-as­so­ci­a­tion). His works, from solo to or­ches­tral via cham­ber and im­mer­sive elec­tron­ics, have been per­formed all over and pre­miered by some of to­day’s top flight mu­si­cians – in­clud­ing Víkingur Ólaf­s­son, ORA Singers, Benjamin Beil­man, Mark Simp­son and Clare Ham­mond.
