MARCO GALVANI - COMPOSER

Marco Galvani is a composer based in London. His choral, operatic, and instrumental music has been performed throughout the UK, Europe, and America. Marco's choral works are published by Edition Peters, and have been commissioned by ensembles such as The Sixteen, Sansara Chamber Choir, The Arcadian Singers, and Salisbury Cathedral Choir. Marco's instrumental music has been performed by CHROMA, Oxford University String Ensemble, and the Zeitgeist Chamber Orchestra. His first chamber opera 'Rothschild's Violin' led David Threasher to describe Marco as a 'compositional voice of genuine promise' in the Oxford Culture Review. 

 

Associate Composer Marco Galvani talks about his piece 'Tantum ergo' from Sansara's debut recording, Cloths of Heaven -  released on 25 February 2017 with Convivium Records. A sample of the piece can be heard here:
