At the Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra we are honoured and excited to be working with acclaimed composer Emma-Ruth Richards on our ERSO emerging composers’ competition.
Emma-Ruth is a composer much in demand in the UK and overseas, acclaimed for her understanding of both instrumental and vocal writing, earning her a role as a favourite among musicians and singers.
Praise for Emma-Ruth includes:
“Accomplished” – Sunday Times
“a composer of exceptional refinement and subtlety [with] a gift for writing deeply expressive pieces”, “lucid, impassioned and compelling” – Musical Opinion, Paul Conway
“Highly charged and simply beautiful” – Opera North, Bachtrack
Emma-Ruth will make the initial assessment of all submitted compositions and will be an expert member of the panel who determine the shortlist of up to 10 composers who will be invited to workshop their compositions with ERSO. She will also be at the workshop and will provide valuable expert advice and feedback to the shortlisted composers.
