Edwin Roxburgh

A student of Nadia Boulanger and Luigi Dallapiccola, the composer, conductor and oboist Edwin Roxburgh is one of the unsung heroes of British music. As a composer he has won many awards and fellowships from the Royal Philharmonic Society as a student to the Elgar Trust Award (a BBC Symphony Orchestra commission) and a British Academy Award for his Oboe Concerto, An Elegy for Ur. His book Conducting for a New Era was published by Boydell and Brewer in 2014.


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.
