Oliver Davis

Nationality: British

Oliver Davis graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in 1994 and has since established himself as a preeminent composer for ballet, film & TV, and the concert hall. His albums on Signum Records have consistently charted highly in the UK Classical Charts and achieved regular airplay, notably on Classic FM and New York radio station WQXR.

Davis released his debut album ‘Flight’, recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra and soloist Kerenza Peacock, in March 2015 to critical acclaim. Since then, he has released three more albums on Signum Records: ‘Seasons’ (October 2015), which included Anno, Davis’ contemporary take on Vivaldi’s Quattro Stagioni; ‘Dance (2016)’; and ‘Liberty’ (2018), all recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Each album has been Featured Album of the Week on Classic FM.

Davis’ compositions are in high demand in the ballet world, featuring on the international stage with renowned ballet companies such as New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Joffrey Ballet Chicago, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, at prestigious venues including Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, and London’s Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio.

Since 2017, Davis has collaborated numerous times with prolific choreographer and Ballet Met Artistic Director Edwaard Liang. The Infinite Ocean, their first work together, premiered at San Francisco Ballet’s Unbound Festival in April 2018 with a specially commissioned score by Davis. ‘Constant Light’ was their next collaboration, for Ballet West in Salt Lake City, Utah. In September, they will premiere a new work at New York City Ballet’s prestigious 2019 Fall Fashion Gala, which will feature costumes designed by fashion icon Anna Sui.
