Alumnus Ned Bigham writes for RSNO and Brodsky Quartet

Ned Bigham writes music at a piano

The mercurial composer is enjoying a busy year of commissions, compositions covering orchestral music, chamber music, choral music and multi-media works.

In April, Ned recorded a new multi-media orchestral work with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) entitled Staffa. This is part of a collaborative project with the BAFTA award winning director Gerry Fox. More recently, he has been working on a new piece for the Brodsky Quartet. Entitled Heaven shall call her from this cloud of darkness, the piece premieres at Petworth Festival in Sussex with performances on 25 and 29 July. He will also hear his new choral work Music To Hear performed for the first time by the Chichester, Salisbury and Winchester Cathedral combined Choirs at Chichester Cathedral on 22 July.

Ned Bigham graduated with a MMus in Composition in 1998 and has since established himself as a multi-talented composer and performer. Starting out as a drummer with Acid Jazz group D-Influence, Bigham went on to produce number one hits for Miami club acts, wrote for Amy Winehouse, and composed an album of orchestral compositions, Culebra, recorded in 2014 by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gregory Rose.
