Silvina Milstein

Silvina Milstein emigrated to Britain after the Argentinian military coup of 1976. At Glasgow University her composition teachers were Judith Weir and Lyell Cresswell and at Cambridge University she studied extensively with Alexander Goehr. She is currently a Professor of Music at King's College London.

Her music has been played by some of the world’s leading orchestras and ensembles, such as BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Ensemble Modern, broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and recorded by LORELT (fire dressed in black: Silvina Milstein chamber works, LNT129). Over the past decade she has explored musical forms arising from heightened states of awareness, borrowing from a wealth of artistic media and spiritual traditions, as evident in her works for the London Sinfonietta, tigres azules and surrounded by distance…, as well as of gold and shadows, premiered by the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
