Notes and Editorial Reviews

David Collins had violin lessons at school, but never progressed very far, as composing began to occupy more of his time. Despite an absorbing interest in music, he was persuaded to pursue other career options; it was only later, while working in the Northwest that he decided to apply to the Royal Northern College of Music, where he studied composition with Anthony Gilbert, supporting himself by working two days a week throughout what was officially a full-time course. It is only recently that he has had more time for composing, and, having discarded almost everything written earlier, has concentrated mainly on chamber music, of which the pieces on this album are representative. Performing these works is the Ardore Duo. Following a debut at Read more the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, a busy schedule quickly developed across Italy including appearances at the Villa d’Este, Accademia Filarmonica Romana, and more. Now based in London, they enjoy a growing reputation, with a rapidly developing concert diary and recording career. Read less
