Results for Paul Patterson Patterson (not all results may be relevant):
English composer. He studied composition with Stoker at the RAM (1964-8) and privately with Bennett (1968-70). The performance of his Trumpet Concerto by Wilbraham with the Bristol Sinfonia in 1969 brought him to public notice. In 1972 he was appointed Manson Fellow and lecturer at the RAM. A versatile composer, he was at first influenced by Bennett, employing serial procedures in a strictly orthodox fashion. At the same time this early music has a strong rhythmic interest that perhaps owes more to neo-classicism. His output of the early 1970s was the product of work with electronics and of a growing acquaintance with the music of Penderecki and Ligeti, manifested in a concern with unusual timbres, with space and with texture.
