A few months ago we were contacted by the Robin Milford Trust, which organised a festival of music by the composer (I remember playing his Sonatina for Treble Recorder). We've been asked to post the following on our website, which we are glad to do in support of British music generally:
The Robin Milford Trust and Victoria College of Music and Drama
The Milford Trust is proud to announce that, since January of this year, a strong bond and working relationship has developed between the Milford Trust and the Victoria College of Music and Drama (Dr Martin Ellerby, Director), all stemming from the determined promotion of Milford and, indeed, all areas of British Music.
So far, the VCM has arranged the following for the Trust:
To facilitate this work, and the promotion of other lesser-known composers, Stewart Thompson has created the J J Lewis British Composer Archive on the London Music Press Website (www.londonmusicpress.com). Stewart is an authority on Cecil Rootham and has worked extensively in this area.
Work on the J J Lewis British Composer Archive will be on-going and anyone interested in contributing to this fine work should contact Stewart at the Victoria College. Access to the Lewis Archive is through the London Music Press Website, clicking on ‘J H Lewis British Composer Archive’, then ‘Composers’, and scrolling down to the appropriate composer.
All queries regarding Robin Milford should still be addressed to Peter Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org
