David Bruce

born: 1970

Born in Connecticut, USA in 1970, composer David Bruce grew up in England and now enjoys a growing reputation on both sides of the Atlantic. In the 2013/14 season David was Associate Composer of the San Diego Symphony, for whom he wrote three pieces, Night Parade for the orchestra’s highly successful Carnegie Hall debut in October 2013; the violin concerto Fragile Light for Gil Shaham; and Cymbeline for mandolin and string quartet for mandolin virtuoso and close collaborator Avi Avital. His fourth Carnegie Hall commission That Time with You (2013) for mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor follows Steampunk (2011), Gumboots (2008) and Piosenki (2006), which have all gone on to be widely performed by leading ensembles around the world. Bruce has also written works for the LPO, Daniel Hope, Dawn Upshaw and the Chamber Music Society of the Lincoln Center, as well as Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble (Cut the Rug, recorded on Sony). In the UK, David was 2012-13 Composer-in-Residence with the Royal Opera House, London and his large-scale opera Nothing (after the book by Janne Teller) co-commissioned by Glyndebourne and ROH, premiered in Glyndebourne in February 2016. Bruce’s chamber opera The Firework Maker’s Daughter (after the Philip Pullman story) toured the UK and New York in 2013 and was shortlisted for both the British Composer Awards, and the 2014 Olivier Awards for Best New Opera Production. It returned to the ROH Lindbury Studios for a 27-performance run in December 2015.
