Graham Fitkin

British composer, pianist and conductor Graham Fitkin was born in Cornwall on 19 April 1963 and was encouraged in music by his piano teacher mother, starting to compose at around eight years old. His teachers at Nottingham University included Nigel Osborne, and later he studied with Louis Andriessen at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague.

Following a few years in London, Graham Fitkin returned to Cornwall, where his output as a composer is tonal, often complex, and minimalist or postminimalist.
