The Composers’ Fund: Naomi Pinnock

The Composers’ Fund: Naomi Pinnock

With an emphasis on reducing music to its essential elements, Naomi Pinnock’s work has been described as ‘enigmatic’ (Words, 5:4, Simon Cummings) and ‘delicately reticent’ (Lines and Spaces, Ivan Hewett). Born in West Yorkshire, she studied composition with Wolfgang Rihm at the Hochschule für Music Karlsruhe, Harrison Birtwistle at King’s College London and with Brian Elias at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

She has collaborated with groups such as the Arditti Quartet, London Sinfonietta, Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart, Schola Heidelberg and Ensemble Adapter and with soloists including Frode Haltli, Omar Ebrahim and Rolf Hind. Her work has been performed at various international music festivals such as hcmf//, Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, ECLAT Festival Stuttgart, Heidelberger Frühling, Festival Musica in Strasbourg and Spitalfields Festival London.

Current projects include a new work for Crash Ensemble and ongoing collaboration with Glasgow-based performance-maker Nic Green.

The Composers’ Fund Award will support the researching and composing of a new 20-minute work for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to be premiered at the 2018 Tectonics Festival in Glasgow, conducted by Ilan Volkov.
