News: British Composer Award for Christine Tobin

Christine Tobin

Last night, Goldsmiths Hall hosted the British Composer Awards 2012.

The award for “Contemporary Jazz Composition” went to Christine Tobin for Sailing to Byzantium

Of the piece, the judges said: “In this ambitious and varied work, the composer has found a truly original voice. A well paced album of settings by Yeats, showing real sensitivity to the text and delivering a completely fresh approach to these well-known poems.

The other nominees, Alex RothThe Charm of Impossibilities and Laura JurdGiant’s Causeway, both are safe bets to win the award in the future.
