Paul Max EdlinComposer | Artistic Director | Lecturer | Performer

Paul Max Edlin is to succeed Cheryl Frances Hoad as Composer in Residence for London Chamber Orchestra’s Music Junction programme. The London Chamber Orchestra (LCO) is one of the world’s finest ensembles. Having been founded in 1921, it is the UK’s oldest professional chamber orchestra. In that time it has established an enviable reputation as an innovative and adventurous ensemble. It has premiered works by a veritable Who’s Who of 20th-century composers, including Stravinsky, Bloch, Vaughan Williams, Respighi, Delius, de Falla, Finzi, Prokofiev, Hindemith, Poulenc and Villa Lobos. And that continues today, with premieres by figures such as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, James MacMillan and Graham Fitkin.
The culmination of this residency will be a substantial new work for the LCO to perform together with around 160 young people in the LCO’s end of season concert at London’s Cadogan Hall in May 2017. This work will form the basis for a significant education programme, Music Junction, that brings together young people from across four regions.
