Saturday 04 August 2012
"It was beyond my wildest dreams to have my work performed at the Proms last week – I only started composing music nine year's ago. It was very emotional."
At the Speed of Stillness was conducted by Sir Mark Elder. The composer from High Wycombe studied cello at Birmingham Conservatoire but switched to composition, before studying with Mark-Anthony Turnage at the Royal Collage of Music.
Next she is composing for the CBSO Youth Orchestra.
