Ryan Latimer signs to James Joslin Music Management

I’m now able to share that Ryan Latimer has joined JJMM's growing roster of composers!

Latimer's music has been described as “anarchic and cartoonishly fun” (BBC Radio 3) and “deliciously playful” (Classical Music Magazine) and has received international performances with leading ensembles such as London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, China National Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic and London Sinfonietta. His works have featured at major festivals around the world including Darmstädter Ferienkurse, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Aldeburgh Festival, Gaudeamus Muziekweek and ISCM World Music Days (Beijing).

On 3 July, Latimer's C. Exigua forms part of NMC Recordings’ 35th birthday celebration concert at Spitalfields Music Festival. This follows from his debut album Antiarkie which was released on the label in 2021 to critical acclaim including 5-stars from BBC Music Magazine. The title track draws from the playful, frenetic and often discontinuous nature of classic cartoons and was recorded by BBC Symphony Orchestra and Pierre-André Valade. Other collaborators on the album include the Crouch End Festival Chorus and BBC Concert Orchestra (Frigates & Folly), RAM Manson Ensemble conducted by Oliver Knussen (Mills Mess), Psappha (Slink & Stride) and Britten Sinfonia (Divertimento) among others.

Most recently, Britten Sinfonia premiered Latimer’s Pound of Cure at Milton Court, Saffron Hall and The Halls, Norwich. Inspired by the visceral, energising nature of the private drawings of the visionary architect Lina Bo Bardi, the piece was enthusiastically received with reviews positively describing it as “witty and playful, propulsive and angular” (The Guardian) and “exuberantly quirky and energetic” (The Times).

I look forward to working with Ryan on projects including a substantial new piece for Solem Quartet for 2025, which was announced earlier this week with the award of funding from the PRS Foundation's 'Open Fund for Music Creators’. The work will feature throughout the quartet's 2025/26 touring programme and will be recorded for future release.
