Composer Graham Fitkin’s work is known internationally. Performances by companies such as Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet, Random, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, San Francisco Ballet, London Chamber Orchestra etc and collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott, Shobana Jeyasingh, Will Gregory, Wayne McGregor, The Wilson Sisters, Ruth Wall etc are a few examples of Graham’s projects. His music has been recorded by Decca, Factory, Sony BMG, Sanctuary and other labels and performances have taken place at venues such as Aula Magna Rome, Lincoln Center New York, Suntory Hall Tokyo, South Bank Centre and Barbican London etc.

Graham’s work is known for its energy, directness and inventiveness, and whilst it is regularly performed in traditional concert halls, he is increasingly involved in disseminating music through new environments e.g. co-commissioning from three international orchestras - Tokyo Symphony, Athens Camerata, London Chamber Orch. or the 12 simultaneous worldwide performances of a solo saxophone commission, site specific performances in the biomes of the Eden Project, GPS accessed musical work, live video collaborations etc.

Graham has always been closely integrated in the performance of his music, whether conducting New York City Ballet, running his own ensembles, producing or performing solo. This ensemble brings together some of the finest musicians from projects that Graham has directed in the past into one focused unit.

Other work for 2010 and 2011 includes a Proms commission, a new cello concerto for Yo-Yo Ma and a new ballet for the Royal Opera House.

Graham has also recently collaborated with Yugo Nakamura on the new Uniqlo Jeans advertising campaign.
