Edmund Finnis is a “hugely gifted composer” (Sunday Telegraph) whose music has been hailed as “magical” (The Times), “iridescent, compelling” (The Guardian), “exquisite” (Sara Mohr-Pietsch, BBC Radio 3) and “ethereally beautiful” (Herald Scotland). His works are regularly performed and broadcast, both at home in the UK and internationally.
Finnis’s multifaceted output ranges from intimate music for soloists and duets to immersive electronic pieces, music for film, ensemble music, and works for large orchestra.
He has written music for some of the leading performers of his own generation (Benjamin Beilman, Mark Simpson, Víkingur Ólafsson, Clare Hammond, Oliver Coates, Minetti Quartet), and renowned ensembles such as BCMG, London Sinfonietta and he was previously Composer-in-Association with the London Contemporary Orchestra. His orchestral works have been performed by orchestras including the LSO, the BBC Scottish Symphony, and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago.
Now Edmund is writing a piano trio for Britten Sinfonia’s At Lunch series. His new work will be premiered during Britten Sinfonia’s At Lunch Two tour in February 2019, in Cambridge, London and Norwich.
