Latest compositions
It’s been a pleasure to recently work on the film “Eyes Wide Open” (a South Korean thriller written and directed by Will Forrester) and have just completed a piece for solo violin and orchestra which is a slight departure from the usual piano and choral music of the last few years.  Really enjoying composing for both film and media as well as for concert.  I shall post some extracts on Soundcloud soon.

Collaborations

My summer in Europe included working with and meeting some very fine musicians. It was a pleasure to accompany German mezzo-soprano Bhawani Moennsad .
Bhawani has previously recorded my art song “Kabir says...” at the Berlin Opera House rooms, with pianist Symeon Ioannidis.

Also a delight to hear Swiss pianist Patricia Siffert perform Streams II in Mainz, Germany. To listen to Patricia play please visit the Charasound Youtube channel or to download Streams and other tracks please visit CD Baby.




Delighted to spend time with New York concert pianist Emily Wong, sharing my new piano music with her at her studio in NY recently. Emily has previously performed my piano so
lo ‘Streams’ in Minneapolis, and now we are looking forward to further collaborations.

ward-winning composer/pianist Emily Wong has written a large catalogue of works for piano, chamber ensemble, and orchestra and as a pianist has appeared often with such orchestras as the San Francisco Symphony, the Oakland Symphony, Philharmonia Virtuosi, Continuum, American Composers Orchestra, and the Stamford Symphony.She currently plays for the American Ballet Theatre.

Caduceus magazine review of “Mirrors of Light”
(Caduceus is one of the UK’s leading Arts, Healing and Spirituality magazines.)

“(the) music is both of its time and ahead of it: it is a bringing of spirit to matter in the medium of sound that touches the highest levels of lightness and grace”



J
ay Ramsay, poetry editor and reviewer writes,

“I always tell people that Rosemary Duxbury is the real thing. She’s a rare phenomenon: a modern, female, classically trained composer whose work is in the tradition of Elgar and Benjamin Britten, and who is also inspired by Stockhausen, Keith Jarrett and the possibilities of computer technology. She’s also deeply inspired by poetry...”

Jay Ramsay is poetry editor for Caduceus, and works in private practice as a UKCP-accredited psychosynthesis psychotherapist in Stroud and London. His new collection Monuments is now available from Waterloo Press. www.jayramsay.co.uk
