David Gorton

The music of David Gorton (recipient of the 2001 Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize) is sometimes characterised by a fascination with alternative tuning systems and virtuosic gestures, and at other times is revels in simple tranquility. Recent projects include pieces for the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Kreutzer Quartet, and Ensemble Exposé. He teaches at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
