 Update me on new releases by Tavener

John Tavener (1/28/1944 - 11/12/2013)

Throughout his career, Sir John Tavener was a unique and influential figure in the contemporary music scene. From his days as an audacious young composer at the forefront of the avant-garde movement in the late sixties and seventies, through to his latter-day rejection of many of the standard aesthetic principles on which the Western classical music tradition is based, he seemed to have caused controversy in whichever direction he moved.

John Kenneth Tavener was born in London in 1944 and educated at the Royal Academy of Music with Lennox Berkeley as his tutor in composition. He was still at college when he won the prestigious Prince Rainier of Monaco Prize in 1965 with his cantata Cain and Abel. He was closely linked with religious music, and his catalogue of works includes three Requiems. Later in his career he moved towards sacred orchestral works, of which his score for cello and orchestra, The Protecting Veil, entered the world of 20th century ‘pop’ classics.
