Composer: Timothy Tate
Interviewed by: Chris Williams
This conversation was recorded on the 30th of June, 2016, at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
“I’ll always say that the composer’s instrument is the viola… with an antipodean flair”
“I think inspiration is that moment when you discover what the piece is going to be about”
This week we’re tucked away, near Regent’s park in Central London, in a rehearsal room at the Royal Academy of Music talking to Composer and Violist Timothy Tate.
