Colin Matthews

Colin Matthews has been described as ‘… the Isambard Kingdom Brunel of contemporary music: master of great time machines, steamy with energy derived from pulse and from massive, surging harmony, and openly displaying their structural engineering, all finished with a craftman’s care’. We are delighted to welcome him to Cambridge to talk about his work.


The Faculty’s series of Composers’ Workshops is open to students in all years of the undergraduate music course as well as Master’s and doctoral students, indeed anyone with an interest in the creation of new music. Because space is limited, please email Richard Causton ( if you are not a Faculty member and wish to attend.
