The English violinist Colin Twigg (b. 1960) first came to attention as a finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 1978 and has since made his living as a chamber and orchestral musician. But composition has always been important to him, and his music reflects the richness of his performing career: its roots are in the great composers of the past, synthesised into an articulate voice that is accessible in style and satisfying in its craftsmanship.
