Critically acclaimed composer Daniel Kidane graduated in 2012 and was signed to Rayfield Allied in 2015.
He has had his work performed extensively across the UK and abroad by the Royal Scottish National, BBC Philharmonic, Chineke! and CBSO Youth Orchestras, as well as Roderick Williams (baritone), Michala Petri (recorder) and Mahan Esfahani (harpsichord). His compositions have also been broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Described by the Financial Times as ‘quietly impressive’ and by The Times as ‘tautly constructed’ and ’vibrantly imagined’, Kidane has recently been appointed LSO Jerwood Composer+. His studies at the RNCM were supported by the Richard Newitt Fund.
