Robin Haigh (b.1993) writes music that channels the frivolity and opaque nostalgia of millennial life into a kind of hazy 21st century romanticism. His “completely refreshing”, “magical” recorder quintet In Feyre Foreste won a British Composer Award in 2017, and his “remarkably discombobulating” chamber orchestra piece Grin was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award in 2020.

Projects for 2021 include a thirty-minute dramatic piece commissioned by the Marsyas Trio and a new work for members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Brett Dean.
