Edward Gregson

Edward Gregson was born in Sunderland, Co Durham, England,  in 1945. He is a composer of international standing whose music has been performed, broadcast, and recorded worldwide. He has written orchestral, chamber, instrumental and choral music, as well as music for the theatre, film, and television, and has completed commissions for orchestras such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony, the Hallé and the BBC Philharmonic. His major orchestral works include Music for Chamber Orchestra (1968), Metamorphoses (1979), Concerto for Orchestra (1983), Blazon (1991), and Dream Song (2010). However, it is his concertos for various instruments that form the backbone of his orchestral output: horn (1971), tuba (1976), trumpet (1983), trombone (1979), clarinet (1994), piano (1997), violin (2000), saxophone (2006), cello (2007), and flute (2013).

His music has been extensively broadcast and recorded, and perhaps of special note is the ongoing series of his orchestral music and concertos on the Chandos label performed by the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC Concert orchestras – the latest volume, the fourth in the series, was released in 2013; in addition, and of similar importance, is the survey of his complete brass band music on the Doyen label. The latest volume (no. 5), including his recent Symphony in two movements and Of Distant Memories, was also released in 2013. Read more>>>
