Jeremy Thurlow – composer

The CD of your recent works gave me great pleasure. I’ve listened to them repeatedly and find them extremely seductive. I loved their real freshness, lightness, and innovative élan. Henri Dutilleux

George Butterworth Award 

for Composition

” …  Jeremy Thurlow demonstrated real mettle in his piece The Will of the Tones. Single notes and quiet resonances gradually built into a surging, shivering mass, spiced with delicious harmonic jolts.  All very satisfying, and meat and drink for [Rolf] Hind’s fingers.  …”  – Geoff Brown, The Times.


” [ JT’s ] piece A Sudden Cartography of Song brought in a welcome breath of wit, life and fresh air.  It had a musing text [by Alistair Appleton] about all sorts of things – memory, nostalgia, how a baby learns, the private world of the deaf community.  Jeremy Thurlow’s music – sung with lovely purity of tone – was as quirky and tenderly affecting as the texts.”

Ivan Hewett, Daily Telegraph.
