Michael Taplin is a composer of orchestral, large ensemble and chamber music. His music has been performed by some of the UK's leading orchestras and ensembles including the Philharmonia and the London Symphony Orchestra. Recent highlights include the premiere of Lambent Fires (commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society) and Ebbing Tides (which received critical acclaim when premiered with the London Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Fabien Gabel). Ebbing Tides is scheduled to be released in May 2020 on the LSO Live Label as part of the third edition of the LSO Panufnik Legacies Series.
Michael is increasingly becoming in demand abroad with performances and premieres of his music in prestigious international music festivals such as the Archipel Festival in Geneva, Switzerland, 2017 ISCM World Music Days' in Vancouver, Canada and most recently at the 2019 Gaudeamus Muziekweek.
Michael is currently pursuing a PhD in Composition at the University of Cambridge, supervised by Richard Causton, and is currently writing a new orchestral piece to be workshopped and recorded by the CBSO.
