Cheryl Frances – Hoad

Frances-Hoad drenched each phrase in dramatic expression of the most ravishing intensity’  Matthew Wright, The Arts Desk

Admired for her originality, fluency and professionalism, Cheryl Frances-Hoad has been composing to commission since she was fifteen. Classical tradition (she trained as a cellist and pianist at the Menuhin School before going on to Cambridge and King’s College, London) along with diverse contemporary inspirations including literature, painting and dance, have contributed to a creative presence provocatively her own.

Intricate in argument, sometimes impassioned, sometimes mercurial, always compelling in its authority‘ (Robin Holloway, The Spectator), her output – widely premiered, broadcast and commercially recorded, reaching audiences from the Proms to outreach workshops – addresses all genres from opera, ballet and concerto to song, chamber and solo music.
