Francis Pott

b. 1957



Francis Pott [b.1957] has acquired an international reputation over the past thirty years. His dramatic, challenging music unites a distinctive personal voice with a highly-disciplined but versatile technique rooted in a keen awareness of the past. To date his works (including a steady flow of major commissions) have been heard in concert and on radio across the UK and in over forty countries worldwide. They have been published in the past by such major houses as Ricordi [UK], Novello, United Music Publishers and Oxford University Press. In December 2013 Francis signed an exclusive agreement with Edition Peters which will entail publication of all his future choral and organ works and of his hitherto-unpublished back-catalogue. His piano and chamber music is published by Composers Edition.
