Alexander Hawkins

Alexander Hawkins is a British composer, pianist, organist, and bandleader who is ‘unlike anything else in modern creative music’. Working in a vast array of creative contexts, his own unique soundworld is forged through the search to reconcile both a love of free improvisation and a profound fascination with composition and structure. He has been widely commissioned, by the likes of the BBC, festivals such as the London and Berlin Jazz Festivals, venues such as the Pierre Boulez Saal, and contemporary music groups such as the Riot Ensemble. Concert appearances take him to major club, concert and festival stages worldwide.
