With a list of works that includes ten operas and two ballets, Thea Musgrave is a composer whose creativity is based on a vivid dramatic instinct. Even her concert works may be conceived as dramatic scenarios between individual instruments and orchestral sections, the drama on occasions emphasised by staging instructions to the musicians. After periods of study in Edinburgh, Paris and the United States, she adopted serialism in the 1960s, though her style has since evolved towards a robust and luxuriant lyricism.
