Christopher Fox

born: 1955
country: United Kingdom

Christopher Fox was born in York in 1955. He studied composition with Hugh Wood, Jonathan Harvey and Richard Orton at Liverpool, Southampton and York Universities. Since 2006 he has been Research Professor in Music at Brunel University. He lives in London with his wife Susan McNally and various of their four children.

Fox’s work has been performed and broadcast world-wide and is widely available on CD, with four portrait CDs on the Metier label, a portrait CD on NMC, and other recordings on Artifact, BVHaast and FMR. He also writes regularly on new music. He was co-editor of Von Kranichstein zur Gegenwart (1996, DACO Verlag, Stuttgart), a history of 50 years of the Darmstadt Ferienkurse, and of Uncommon Ground, a book on the music of Michael Finnissy (1998, Ashgate Press, London).

Fox has been hailed by Andy Hamilton in The Wire as ‘a tantalising figure in British Music’; Paul Driver in The Sunday Times has described his music as ‘impressive, thoughtful, entertaining and extremely varied’, while Paul Griffiths, writing in The Times, has said of Fox’s work that ‘he takes simple ideas but he makes them sound quite wonderful’. Fox’s work regularly extends beyond the conventional boundaries of the concert hall; his most recent work was premiered in the turbine works of Siemens Berlin.
