Ewers Tim (b.1958)

Biography of Ewers Tim:

My mother was a music teacher and encouraged me to start playing the piano and violin from an early age. Later a vacancy in my school windband gave me the opportunity to take up the oboe and it soon became my main instrument. I started composing while at school and developed my interest in it while studying with Reginald Smith-Brindle and Robin Maconie at Surrey University (1976-79). I won the composition prize in my final year and went on to study with Stanley Glasser for a Masters degree in composition at Goldsmiths’ College, University of London (1980-82). During this period, I set up and ran the Varèse Ensemble, a chamber orchestra specialising in the performance of new music and they gave the premières of a number of my early works. In 1982 I joined the staff at Goldsmiths’, teaching there on a part-time basis until 1995. Since 1993 I have worked at Kingston University and am now a Senior Lecturer in music. In 1996, I was awarded a doctorate for my composition work by the University of Nottingham. My music has been performed by The Wallace Collection, Quorum and Gemini and I have recently written pieces for Jane Manning and Jane’s Minstrels, The Delta Saxophone Quartet, Morphosen and for The Fibonacci Sequence. I am currently working on a new piece for the Liverpool 10/10 Ensemble and a recording, by the Delta Saxophone Quartet, of On The Edge, is due for release in 2009.
