One of Britain’s foremost and  most celebrated composers, Gabriel Jackson was born in Bermuda in 1962. After three years as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, Jackson went on to study composition with Richard Blackford and with John Lambert at the Royal College of Music. While at the college he won the Theodore Holland Award in 1981 and was awarded the R.O. Morris Prize for Composition in 1981 and 1983. His music is regularly performed, recorded and broadcast throughout Europe and the USA and has recently been heard as far afield as Campine Grande, Taipei, Skálholt, Ho Chi Minh City, Hamilton, Kiev and Kuwait.

The Fund will support the composition of a substantial work for alto saxophone, strings and percussion, with initial performances in Tallinn and Riga by Arvydas Kazlauskas.
