London-born Anna Clyne is a two-time GRAMMY-nominated composer of acoustic and electro-acoustic music. Described as a “composer of uncommon gifts and unusual methods” in a New York Times profile and as “fearless” by NPR, Clyne is one of the most in-demand composers of her generation, embarking on collaborations with choreographers, visual artists, and musicians.
Clyne has composed for musicians such as Martin Fröst, Jess Gillam, Pekka Kuusisto, and Yo-Yo Ma. Her music has been commissioned by venues including Carnegie Hall and the Southbank Center and by ensembles such as the Baltimore Symphony, LA Opera, Houston Ballet, and the LA Philharmonic. Within Her Arms opened the New York Philharmonic’s 21-22 season and PIVOT opened the 2021 Edinburgh International Festival.
Clyne has served as Composer-in-Residence for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Berkeley Symphony, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, London Philharmonia, L’Orchestre national d’Île-de-France and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
