Emily Howard signs to Edition Peters
We’re excited to share the news that Emily Howard has signed to Edition Peters, with her back catalogue and future works to be published by us.
Howard first won critical acclaim with the orchestral work Magnetite, commissioned by Liverpool European Capital of Culture for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Vasily Petrenko. Known for her music’s particular connection with science, Howard has been commissioned, performed and broadcast internationally by festivals and ensembles including the BBC Proms, London Symphony Orchestra, New Scientist Live, Wien Modern and the Bamberger Symphoniker.
She studied Mathematics and Computer Science at Oxford University and holds a Doctorate in Composition from the University of Manchester. Howard is currently Professor of Composition at the Royal Northern College of Music and Director of PRiSM (the RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music).
In September 2019, the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle will premiere a new orchestral commission, Antisphere, which (along with sphere and Torus) completes a trilogy of orchestral works inspired by geometric shapes.
An Ada Lovelace-inspired event curated by Howard will take place at Milton Court, London, the following month as part of the Barbican Center’s year-long Life Rewired season. Britten Sinfonia will premiere a new work by Howard based on a text by Lovelace and well as performing Ada Sketches, a scena imagining the interior life of the mathematician and developer of the Analytical Engine, and further commissions.
