While visiting the United States, British composer Simon Bainbridge visits New England Conservatory for this colloquium on his music. The discussion will focus on works for orchestra and chorus: Towards the Bridge and Chant (1999), Diptych (2006), and The Garden of Earthly Delights (2012).
After graduating from the Royal College of Music, Bainbridge studied with Gunther Schuller at Tanglewood, occasionally producing works that exhibited a fondness for American culture. In the 1990s his work took on a new expressive dimension such as in Ad Ora Incerta (1994), which earned him the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in 1997.
