Ryan Latimer: Composers’ Fund
The PRSF Composers’ Fund will help towards the production of Ryan’s first album, which will be released by NMC in 2021 as part of their Debut Disc series. This is Ryan’s first full-length album and therefore the first significant opportunity to present his work in such a tangible, accessible and comprehensive form. The featured music on the album is some of the most substantial and considered work he has written to date and showcases the breadth and variety of his output; ranging from orchestral, choral, chamber and vocal compositions. The Composers’ Fund will contribute specifically to the cost of recording his recent chamber work ‘Speaking of Letters and Dancing’, which will feature alongside other exceptional performances from leading national and international artists.
Ryan Latimer is a composer based in Birmingham. His music has been performed internationally by leading ensembles including the LSO, CBSO, China National Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Warsaw Chamber Opera and St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra. Ryan was recently in residence with the BBC Symphony Orchestra as part of the Sound and Music Embedded Scheme and his new work for the orchestra was broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and was subsequently featured during the ISCM World Music Days 2018, in Beijing.
