Gareth Churchill

Composer

About


Gareth Churchill is a British composer based in Cardiff. Blending influences from the classical canon and the world around him with those from traditional and popular cultures relevant to individual projects, his music is characterised by a lightness of touch and an economy of means, in which the mechanical and the pastoral combine.

He has been critically described as a 'genuine composer of talent' (Classical source 2009) who 'has plenty of impact' (Music Web International 2018) and 'portrays very effectively a dialogue between lyricism and menace' (Wales Arts Review 018).

His work has reached audiences in more than ten countries and, in 2018, was the subject of a 'spot-light' retrospective concert at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff. In 2020 an all Churchill portrait disk of Gareth's instrumental solos was released digitally on the Ty Cerdd record label.
