Luke Styles Composer
Styles’s On Bunyah is magnificent and just like the poem is raw, not polite.

Luke Styles

Luke is a composer prolific in opera, the theatre and instrumental music. His operas including Macbeth and Tycho’s Dream have been performed at Glyndebourne, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Perth Festival. His operas have explored diverse worlds including cabaret, war and science fiction, and allowed him to delve into sensual lyricism, humour, chaos and darkness in his music.

Luke Styles is published and represented worldwide by G.Schirmer/Music Sales. Luke was the first Glyndebourne Young Composer in Residence (2011-2014), represented by IMG Artists (2015-2019) and the first composer in residence at the Foundling Museum since Handel (2015-2016).

Collaborations are central to Luke’s work and this has led to new works with conductors and soloists including Vladimir Jurowski, Mark Padmore and David Pyatt and ensembles such as the London Sinfonietta, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Britten Sinfonia and the Commonwealth Games.

the orchestral writing is crisp and incisive, conjuring up with imagination the successive atmospheres required for the tragedy’s trajectory.
