Christian Mason

A 2015 winner of an Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung Composer Prize, Christian Mason is enjoying a prolific career with an array of forthcoming commissions from prestigious institutions. This includes a piece for Pierre Boulez's 90th birthday to be performed by the Ensemble Intercontemporain at the Lucerne Festival, a work for large ensemble to be recorded by Klangforum Wien and performed by the Tokyo Sinfonietta in Tokyo and a 10' composition for symphony orchestra for the Radio-France programme, Alla Breve, which will be recorded by the Orchestre National de France. Christian has also been commissioned to write a work for percussion ensemble for the opening of the new Asian Arts Theatre in Gwangju, Korea in the 2015/2016 season: a project curated by Unsuk Chin.
