Richard Blackford in conversation

with Richard Blackford and Thomas Hyde

2024 Festival composer-in-residence Richard Blackford discusses his life, career and music with fellow composer Thomas Hyde. Blackford studied composition with John Lambert at the Royal College of Music and later with Hans Werner Henze in Rome. Recently, The Times wrote of his ‘wonderfully sensitive settings in which every nuance of the text seems perfectly mirrored in his tonal and often voluptuously lyrical music’.
