I write music for chamber ensembles, youth and adult choirs, orchestras and theatre groups.

Through my music I hope to communicate the potential drama, mystery, excitement and sometimes humour of the whole musical process through rhythm, melody, harmony and form.

Commissions have included a wind quintet celebrating the reopening of Brighton Museum and Art Gallery, a piano duet for the 75th anniversary of Brighton and Hove Progressive Synagogue, and an unaccompanied choral work for the 20th anniversary of Brighton Chamber Choir.

My travels have often been a source of inspiration for my music, including several trips to Africa, a trip to Palestine and to various European countries. I am currently working on a new commission for solo piano.

You can listen to audio samples of my work here.

My new revision of Portraits for Wind Quintet is now available from the publishers Spartan Press, catalogue no. PP450. mail@SpartanPress.co.uk or www.SpartanPress.co.uk

If you would like to commission a work for instrumental ensemble, solo instrument, chamber or full orchestra, solo voice or choir, please contact me at contact@guyrichardsoncomposer.co.uk
