More about this title


Written for Nicholas Daniel.
Alan Ridout was born in Kent in 1934. At a young age, he had written over a hundred works: dramatic music, orchestral works (there was a symphony) and numerous concertante pieces, chamber music, piano music, songs and choral settings. Two years were spent at the Guildhall School of Music where, apart from composition, he continued his piano studies and also studied conducting. His primary interest in composition then took him to the Royal College of Music where he worked for two years with Gordon Jacob and a further two with Herbert Howells. By the time he left the R.C.M. at the age of 20 a good number of his works had been performed, mainly at concerts of the Society for the Promotion of New Music. His first instrumental work to be professionally performed was a Concerto for String Orchestra, written when he was 14. He was then awarded a Netherlands Government Scholarship in 1958, and explored both electronic and microtonal techniques.
