Piers Hellawell

  • Composer

Piers Hellawell’s work has been performed around the world by leading artists such as LSO, Håkan Hardenberger, Evelyn Glennie, Philharmonia Orchestra and the Hilliard Ensemble. The CD ‘Airs, Waters’ in May 2012 was hailed as "gorgeously impassioned work..... a rich kaleidoscope of inspired creativity". Syzygy was premiered in 2013 by Swedish Chamber Orchestra; 2016 (60th Birthday Year) saw Wild Flow at the BBC Proms, while the trio Up By The Roots - a collaboration with poet Sinéad Morrissey - is released in 2019 on a disc of that name, again on Delphian. Piers Hellawell is published by Peters Edition.
