As a composer I often feel the need to present my music as a single genre or style; but my musical journey has led through such a diverse range of disciplines and applications, that I have wanted to find something more, to tie them together. I collaborate with a wide variety of disciplines including dance, theatre and film to create original and exciting music.
Britten Sinfonia Opus Prize Winner JANUARY 2019
“Following a workshop at Saffron Hall with Sir James MacMillan and five shortlisted composers, Britten Sinfonia is pleased to announce that Robert Singer has been selected as the winner of OPUS2018. Robert’s piece, a setting of texts about the sea, will receive its world premiere tour in March 2019 at Wigmore Hall, London; West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge; and St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich. Robert will also receive a commission fee, and a professional recording of his work.”
The Hurricane is an upcoming piece based upon elemental forces. Fire, Water and Wind reflect the non-stop chaos and turmoil that seem inevitable as part of our existence, but are also anchors to the land, reminding us of the vast stillness that is all around us. Sung by Chanae Curtis, this three part song cycle will be performed during the first half of 2019. Stay tuned for updates.
