British Composer Awards Release Shortlist

By Ben Mattison
08 Nov 2005

Harrison Birtwistle, Michael Nyman, and John Tavener are among the composers on the shortlist for the British Composer Awards, which was announced on November 4 by the British Academy of Composers & Songwriters.

The awards, which are presented in association with BBC Radio 3, will be handed out at a ceremony at Ironmonger's Hall in London on December 9.

Birtwistle was nominated in the choral category for The Ring Dance of the Fragments and in the orchestral category for Night's Black Bird, a work commissioned by the Roche corporation and performed by the Cleveland Orchestra at the Lucerne Festival and Carnegie Hall.

The other orchestral nominations went to Richard Barrett for No, which was commissioned by the BBC Symphony, and Thea Musgrave for Turbulent Landscapes, which was premiered by the Boston Symphony last year.

Other composers receiving multiple nominations included Judith Weir and Cecilia McDowall.
