Robert Draper Composer © 2016



One of the most refreshing and individual sounding classical composers of our time,  he produces music that is dramatic, passionate and direct.  His music engages with audiences from the outset , taking them on a musical excursion that may venture through tragedy to triumph, from impenetrable darkness to blazing light: and everything else in between.  

He lives in England, having retreated from London to the East Sussex countryside, where his music is conceived and written.
