The Composers’ Fund: Erika Fox

Erika Fox was born in Vienna of Hungarian / Romanian parents and came to England as a war refugee. Her highly distinctive musical style is a result of a childhood suffused with music of Eastern European origin and many of her 52 works show a natural affinity for theatre and stage. In the 70s, 80s and 90s, her music was regularly performed at festivals, the South Bank, Wigmore Hall and received broadcasts in the UK and Internationally. She is the recipient of the 1983 Finzi Award (Kaleidoscope) and her chamber opera (The Dancer Hotoke) was nominated for an Olivier Award.

This project marks the first commercial recording of the chamber music of Erika Fox (b. 1936); a selection of Fox’s bold, uncompromising and remarkably fresh music from 1983-2003 will be introduced to a new generation of listeners. Performed by the Goldfield Ensemble and released on the NMC label, this recording will enable the music of Erika Fox to become better known and her highly distinctive compositional voice to deservedly gain a place within the canon of living composers.
