Out of Winter

Jonathan Dove (b. 1959) studied composition with Robin Holloway at Cambridge and worked as a freelance repetiteur, animateur and arranger. His first major projects came via Glyndebourne, including his breakthrough commission, the opera Flight, for Glyndebourne Touring Opera. Other operatic works include The Adventures of Pinocchio, Swanhunter, children’s opera The Hackney Chronicles, When She Died – examining the response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales – and Man on the Moon. Works for orchestra include the trombone concerto Stargazer, and Moonlight Revels for trumpet and saxophone. Dove was presented with the Ivor Novello Award for Classical Music in 2008, and in 2010 A Song of Joys opened the Last Night of the Proms.
