Jonathan Dove (b7/18/1959)

Jonathan Dove was born in London in 1959. His early musical experiences came from playing the piano, organ and viola. He studied composition with Robin Holloway at Cambridge University and, after graduation, worked as a freelance accompanist, repetiteur, animateur and arranger. As a composer his breakthrough commission was the airport comedy Flight. Originally commissioned for Glyndebourne Touring Opera in 1998, Flight was soon produced as part of the main festival and broadcast on network television, and has since gone on to achieve astounding success, with some thirteen productions to date in Europe, the United States and Australia. The community opera Tobias and the Angel and The Palace In The Sky, commissioned by English National Opera, followed.

Dove’s natural sense for theatre often finds its way into his instrumental compositions. Stargazer, a concerto for trombone and orchestra commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra has been described by him as an opera for the solo instrument—the initial stimulus being a typically theatrical image of the trombone as a kind of musical telescope. In The Magic Flute Dances, a concerto for flute and orchestra, Dove imagines the life of Mozart’s eponymous instrument once the opera has ended. Moonlight Revels, a double concerto for trumpet and saxophone describes the volatile relationship between Shakespeare’s Titania and Oberon.
