Composer of the Month January 2022: Helen Grime

Helen GrimeScottish composer Helen Grime (b.1981) writes music that has been praised for the precision of its instrumental color and wide-ranging expression. Her works, which include everything from large orchestral canvasses to intimate chamber settings, often take the visual arts and literature as their starting point. Following studies at the Royal College of Music in London, in 2008 she was awarded a Leonard Bernstein Fellowship to attend Tanglewood Music Center. Between 2011 and 2015 she was Associate Composer to the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester and from 2016 to 2018 was Composer in Residence at London’s Wigmore Hall. In addition to commissions from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic, recent works include a song cycle ‘Bright Travellers’ to poems by Fiona Benson, a short orchestral work ‘Limina,’ which was commissioned for Tanglewood Music Center and Boston Symphony Orchestra’s 19/20 season, and a second string quartet which was premiered at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival in 2021. She is currently working on a Trumpet Concerto for Swedish virtuoso Håkan Hardenberger, which has been commissioned by the Koussevitzky Music Foundation, London Symphony Orchestra and Boston Symphony Orchestra. Her works are published by Chester Music.
