Ryan Latimer

Ryan Latimer is a British composer whose music has been described as “anarchic and cartoonishly fun” (BBC Radio 3), “deliciously playful” (Classical Music Magazine) and “irresistible in its tongue-in-cheek irreverence” (ISCM). His work has been performed internationally by leading ensembles including London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, China National Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic and London Sinfonietta.

In 2021, his debut album was released worldwide on NMC Recordings. “Allusive, sparkling and emphatically rhythmic” (The Guardian), it reached #2 in the UK Official Charts and received 5 stars from BBC Music Magazine. Other recent works, including Bellwether, Mills Mess and Gorilla and Orange Sun, have also been released by NMC, Ablaze and Birmingham Record Company.

He is a regular collaborator with the contemporary dance group, Cohan Collective, and has worked closely with choreographers Jacqueline Bulnes, Dane Hurst and Jade Brider. In 2014, Ryan composed and co-directed his first chamber opera, Three Tall Tales of Dr Monsieur Façade. This interdisciplinary work, composed for ensemble, singers, actors and mimes, was developed in collaboration with dramaturges and performers from Warszawskie Centrum Pantomimy in Poland.

Ryan is a Lecturer in Music at the University of Birmingham and an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music.
