Edward Dudley Hughes

  • Composer


Edward Dudley Hughes’s work as a composer has become known in recent years following major commissions from the City of London Festival (an opera The Birds) and the Brighton Festival (including a new score to Sergei Eisenstein’s classic silent film Battleship Potemkin). These works have toured to the Salamanca Festival (2005) and to the Sydney Festival (2005) in the Sydney Opera House, where his collaboration with the distinguished Japanese textile artist Teruyoshi Yoshida was given six performances live by the Seymour Group. His 2001 score to Ivens’s Rain continues to be performed widely, most recently by the Israel Contemporary Players in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in May 2007, where it was broadcast on Israeli network radio, and as part of the International Hanns Eisler Conference in Berlin in November 2008.
