The Composers’ Fund: Charlotte Bray

The Composers’ Fund: Charlotte Bray

The composer Charlotte Bray has emerged as a distinctive and outstanding talent of her generation. Exhibiting uninhibited ambition and desire to communicate, her music is exhilarating, inherently vivid, and richly expressive with lyrical intensity. Charlotte studied under Mark Anthony Turnage at the Royal College of Music and previously under Joe Cutler at the Birmingham Conservatoire. She has written for leading musicians, including Lawrence Power, Roderick Williams and Jennifer Pike. Her associations include Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and her work has featured at the BBC Proms, Aldeburgh, Tanglewood, Aix-en-Provence and Verbier. Sir Mark Elder, Oliver Knussen and Daniel Harding are among the renowned conductors who have performed her work.

The Composers’ Fund grant will contribute to the costs of making the world premiere recordings of a selection of my chamber and solo works. This CD, the second dedicated to my music, will be performed by The Amaryllis Quartet and The Mariani Piano Quartet. Forming the body of the disc are three chamber works- Invisible Cities (viola and piano), Zustände (piano quartet) and The Sun was Chasing Venus (string quintet), interspersed with two short solo works, On the Other Shore (cello) and Beyond (violin). Part of the grant will be used to finance a launch concert for the new recording.
