More about the composers

Gerald Finzi

Despite being trained at Christ Church, High Harrogate and having written Christian choral music throughout his life, Finzi was actually an agnostic.

Benny Goodman

Widely known as ‘The King of Swing’, Goodman’s band was the first Jazz band to play New York’s Carnegie Hall. His impact on both Jazz and Classical music was emphatic and his ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the 1986 Grammy Awards is just one of his many accolades.

Paul Reade

Lancashire born Paul Reade’s compositions include the score for Birmingham Royal Ballet’s 1989 production of Hobson’s Choice. He also co-wrote the theme to the BBC’s long-running Antiques Roadshow.

Richard Rodney Bennett

Bennett’s wide range of film score’s have earned him three Academy Award nominations and a 1974 BAFTA award for his score to Murder on the Orient Express.

Ástor Piazzolla

Piazzolla is highly regarded as one of the great innovators of the Argentine Tango. L’histoire du tango was his attempt to portray the evolution of Argentina’s national dance, and the selected piece Café 1930  was his tribute to the traditional tango he would listen to as a teenager in the café’s of Buenos Aires in the 1930’s.

Darius Milhaud

Darius Milhaud was one of the most prolific composers of the 20th century, but did you know he also schooled Jazz legend Dave Brubeck? He had such a profound effect on Brubeck's career that he chose to name his son, Darius, after him.
