Richard Blackford

Born: 1954

Nationality: American

Publisher: Novello & Co

Richard Blackford studied privately with Elisabeth Lutyens and at the Royal College of Music. He spent a number of years as Henze’s assistant in Italy, where he received his first commissions while immersed in the European avant-garde. He returned to London in 1977 to turn his sights to the dramatic potential of music: he received two commissions for children’s operas and embarked on his career as a composer for the screen which has resulted in over eighty scores for film and television. The mid-1990s saw a renewed focus on lyrical and eloquent works for the concert hall, notably the poignant and eclectic oratorio Voices of Exile.
