Profile Information

What have you composed for? Or what medium do you work around?
Small Ensemble, Songs
What is your favorite genre or style of music?
Bach, Mozart, Brahms... (but so much else besides)
Is music your main income source?
No - Not at all.
Where do you live?
About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I'm an environmentalist turned anthropologist who composes music and plays the piano as a hobby (or perhaps "passion" would be more accurate). I mostly write music for piano or for voice or solo instrument and piano and occasionally take part in chamber music concerts (on piano), usually featuring a new work of mine.

I used to say I was influenced by the English "cowpat" style (Finzi, Vaughan Williams, country lanes, summer evenings etc.) with a dash of German late romanticism... but now I'm not sure. I'm currently working on a violin, trumpet and piano trio which, when completed, will be a very belated wedding present for a violinist-trumpeter couple.

Looking forward to getting involved in this community!

Greetings Jonathan,

I just put a few random pieces together for this forum. Thank you so much for listening. You are the first who ever listened to my music.

I will send you some more if you like.

Thanks again and the very best to you,

Larry Elliott
