Peter Reynolds Composer Studio 2020

Each year, the Festival runs the Peter Reynolds Composer Studio for six emerging composers.

Named in memory of Peter Reynolds, a much-loved friend and supporter of the Festival, it offers a week of intensive learning under Course Director Dr Robert Fokkens of Cardiff University and the chance to have work performed by leading musicians.

This year things had to be done a little differently, so Siwan Rhys (piano) and George Barton (percussion) gave tutorials over Zoom before recording a piece by each of the composers at home.

Here we present each of those recordings – listen to explore music by some of the composers of the future.
