Composers Edition is delighted to welcome Gregory Emfietzis with an initial selection of eight works for a range of forces including solos for piano and cello, chamber and vocal works. Works include the beguiling The Book of the Dead – a song cycle composed for the Aldeburgh Music English Song Project.
Emfietzis’s music both takes advantage of the freedoms of contemporary compositional practice whilst being disarmingly direct in its emotional and psychological content. It has been able to attract commissions and performances from an impressive array of contemporary musicians and ensembles including London Sinfonietta, Apartment House, Huw Watkins, Asamisimasa and Orkest de Ereprijs.
We look forward to helping bring this music to a wider public.
