Joseph James

born: ?
country: United Kingdom

The music of Joseph James is the fruit of a long-standing collaboration between Stanley Joseph Seeger and Francis James Brown. Both are composers in their own right, having first met in Florence in the early 1950s whilst studying with Luigi Dallapiccola. Other recorded works by Joseph James are the film score for the Priest of Love, a film biography of D H Lawrence directed by Christopher Miles, and Sketches from the Scarlet Letter, their opera based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel. Joseph James’s Requiem after J S Bach received its first performance in 1997, and a more recent work (2001) is the Piano Concerto after P I Tchaikovsky, based on the Russian composer’s Souvenir de Florence and a movement from his Op 80 Piano Sonata.
