Robin Haigh is a composer from London. In 2017 he became one of the youngest ever recipients of a British Composer Award at the age of 24. As well as being commissioned by the UK’s most prestigious ensembles and institutions such as the LSO, Britten Sinfonia and Sage Gateshead, he has collaborated closely with leading ensembles of his own generation including the Ligeti Quartet and The Hermes Experiment.
Britten Sinfonia will premiere a new work of Robin’s in a concert featuring acclaimed pianist Benjamin Grosvenor on Tuesday 12 November in Norwich, as well as performances on Sunday 24 November at Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden and Tuesday 26 November 2019 at Milton Court Concert Hall, Barbican, London.
Robin is incredibly excited about his new commission with Britten Sinfonia. He tweeted on 21st February:
“So honoured to have been commissioned to write a new chamber orchestra piece by Britten Sinfonia, one of my absolute favourite ensembles, directed by the great Thomas Gould!”
