The music of composer Conrad Asman has gained international recognition as being 'innovative and cutting edge' (Chorosynthesis) and spans a wide emotional range from 'heart-rending' (The Esoterics), to 'fun and festive' (Creative Feel).
His works have been performed in Africa, Asia, Europe and America in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and the Jinji Lake Concert Arena. Commissions and engagements with groups such as the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra, the Esoterics singers, the CHROMA ensemble and the Cape Town Youth Choir have led to his work winning multiple major awards, scholarships and commissions worldwide.
Asman’s UK-based work has included orchestral premieres with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra as well as being chosen to represent Britain at the 2020/22 ISCM World Music Days Festival. His Piccolo Concerto was premiered by the London Philharmonic Orchestra during its 2022 Debut Sounds concert. He was further commissioned by the orchestra to compose a new chamber work for their young artist programme.
Asman works for the English National Opera as one of its Music Librarians. He is also pursuing a Doctoral degree at the Academy exploring the topic of ‘compositional virtuosity’.
