LPO/Foyle Future Firsts/Jack Sheen

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 “quirky, playful, bold and original” chamber orchestra piece Grin earned him an Ivor Novello Award in 2020. His “dream-like”, “timeless” harp solo No One is nominated for a 2021 Ivor Novello Award.

Upcoming performances and recordings in Italy, Germany, Canada, the USA and across the UK include new large ensemble works for Orchester im Treppenhaus and Aldeburgh Festival, and chamber commissions from the Marsyas Trio and Willinger Duo. Robin is a 2021/22 Britten Pears Young Artist, and is representing the Republic of Ireland in the 2022 Composer Slam European Championship in Hanover.
