We’re delighted to welcome Colin Riley to Composers Edition. The opening selection of works reflect the directness and genuine integration of stylistic approaches at the heart of Colin’s music. The Inside Springs for orchestra (first performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra) includes electric guitar in a way which makes it sound entirely at home. The beguiling Shenanigans for clarinet and piano is typical of Colin’s chamber music in its beautiful clarity. His chamber opera Science Fictions (commissioned by the St Magnus Festival) has just been recorded for DVD release and Colin is busy with several projects as you’ll see on his profile – we look forward to publishing new works as they arrive!
