Adrian Williams

born: 1956
country: United Kingdom

Born in 1956, Adrian Williams gained an early reputation as a prodigiously gifted pianist before embarking on a distinguished career in composition that has spawned accolades including the Menuhin and Guinness Prizes and the Charterhouse residency.

Long drawn to the Welsh border region where the wild, open spaces of his surroundings have made a significant impact on his work, Williams’ music extends across a wide range of genres including orchestral, chamber and vocal music together with music for film and television.

His eclectic, richly compelling creative voice speaks with an emotional directness that is rare in modern music, being diverse in its influences yet at once deeply personal and underpinned by both a desire to communicate and a powerful command of melody and structure.

Recent works include a choral orchestral work The Idea Of Peace to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Utrecht for the City of London Festival and the Vrede van Utrecht festival in Utrecht and an orchestral work A road all paved with stars based on music from Vaughan Williams’s opera The Poisoned Kiss, commission by Oxford University Press and the Ralph Vaughan Williams Charitable Foundation.
