Today's Featured Composer:
| music by this composer |
Edward Gregson is a reader in Music at the University of London Goldsmith's College, visiting Professor of Composition at the Royal Academy of Music, Past Chairman and Executive Committee Member of the Association of Professional Composers, pianist and conductor of predominantly contemporary music, but well known in band circles for his splendid test pieces for brass band, 'Essay', 'Dances and Arias', 'Connotations' and a growing number of significant works for wind. These include 'Metamorphoses', the very popular 'Festivo' and concertos for tuba, trombone and trumpet. The moving 'Missa Brevis Pacem' for treble and baritone soloists, SSA choir and symphonic wind band has made a deep impression.
He conducted the first performances of 'The Sword and the Crown', music reworked from his Royal Shakespeare Company incidental music for 'The Plantagenets' trilogy of 1988. He fulfilled a RSC commission for music for a Stratford production of Henry IV parts 1 and 2.
In 1996 he took up the position of Principal of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
