Richard Hill Music

Welcome to the official website of contemporary British composer Richard Hill.

Richard's compositions, ranging from full symphonic works to chamber pieces for brass quintet, are inspired by his broad experience in many musical genres and his love both of the natural world and of Jungian psychology.

From the richly exuberant and exciting 'Symphony of Jazz' repertoire, via the magical orchestral ballet suite 'Images from Kubla Khan', to the dreamlike atmospheric electronic score and beautifully surrealistic songs of the music drama 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', both inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Richard's cross-art projects reveal a deep instinctive awareness of poetry, jazz, drama and film.

The orchestral recording of 'Images from Kubla Khan', conducted by the composer and narrated by Ben Kingsley, attracted wonderful reviews on its release in the USA. It is now available worldwide as a digital download release on the Academy Recordings label, from many online music service providers, including Amazon

You may also like to check out Richardís new performance album 'Baroque Sounds' on which he demonstrates the power of the music synthesizer in creating musically sensitive interpretations of a selection of baroque gems by J S Bach, Giovanni Gabrieli and others. 'Baroque Sounds' is also available as a digital download on the Academy Recordings label and again, from many online shops, including Amazon

Visually stimulating and imbued with a powerful and sure feeling for the sound palette that is orchestration, Richard's music is at once approachable and wonderfully imaginative - contemporary, yet evolving from a rich and cosmopolitan orchestral heritage.
