-Posted on 18.01.2018

The Royal Academy of Music has appointed four Professors of Music, each who have made an outstanding contribution both to the Academy and to international musical life:

Philip Cashian has been Head of Composition at the Academy since 2007. His music has been commissioned, performed and broadcast worldwide, with major commissions from leading orchestras including the London Sinfonietta, London Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Britten Sinfonia. His work also includes compositions for chamber ensembles, opera and dance.

Michael Dussek, Head of Piano Accompaniment at the Academy, is a chamber music and accompaniment specialist and has been performing in the world’s major concert halls with internationally acclaimed artists for more than thirty years. As a member of three chamber ensembles, the Dussek Piano Trio, Endymion and Primavera, Dussek performs regularly at Britain’s major concert venues. He has been described as ‘an outstanding artist’ and a ‘hugely respected pianist’ and has recorded four CDs for Deutsche Grammophon with violinist Ryu Goto.

Margaret Faultless, Head of Historical Performance since 2012, is co-leader of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and director of training programmes for the OAE and European Union Baroque Orchestra. As an experienced performer and recording artist, Faultless is best known as an interpreter of eighteenth-century repertoire and specialist in historical performance practice. In addition to her role at the Academy, Faultless is an Artistic Director of the Cambridge University Collegium Musicum and Director of Performance Studies at Cambridge University Faculty of Music.

David Titterington, Head of Organ, performs worldwide at leading venues and festivals including numerous appearances at the BBC Proms and Royal Festival Hall. His collaborations with composers have resulted in the creation of many new works for organ – including the premiere of Sally Beamish’s Chaconne at Royal Festival Hall in 2016. Titterington is Artistic Director of St Albans International Organ Festival and a jury member for major international organ competitions.

Congratulations to our new Professors.
