Prolific composer, producer and cellist Peter Gregson has built up a truly impressive profile and might be the most successful composer you have yet to hear of. Starting to play cello from when he was four, the instrument is still his composing instrument of choice, although his experiments with sound in production take him well beyond cello concertos, The New Yorker describing him as ‘at the forefront of the new music scene’. Not shying away from modern production, Gregson’s flair for melody, the big lyrical gesture and dreamlike evocations in the lineage of great British composers.
With Patina, his fifth studio album, he delivers his most personal album yet. The idea of ‘the presence of absence’ was key to the composition of every track on Patina.
The album is out now, including in the new special high-quality spatial listening experience of Dolby Atmos on Apple Music.
