British composer, Andrew March was born in 1973. For more than 8 years, Andrew received piano
tuition from Mrs Margaret Cooper in his home town of Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
In 1992, he attended the Royal College of
Music, London, to study composition with Jeremy Dale Roberts and piano with the
late Richard Nunn.
In 2001, Andrew took part in a collaborative project with pianist
brothers Peter & Patrik Jablonski to write Nymphéas for Two Pianos.
The duo gave the World Première in the Royal Palace Stockholm in 2002,
followed by a mini- tour of Scandinavia. With the help of Janine
Reding, other international piano duos, such as Kazakhstani duo NikaSveta added
the work to their repertoire list after giving live performances.
Towards the end of 2012, Andrew's elegy for strings, Sanguis Venenatus (in memory of haemophiliacs who lost their
lives due to contaminated blood products) was released on Parma's Navona label.
The elegy has subsequently been broadcast on international radio and has received
repeat airings during drive-time programmes on stations such as Sweden's P2
Klassiskt, Estonia's Klassikaraadio, and South Africa's Classic FM.
June 2013 saw the publication of De Profundis with Paraclete Press, USA. In October, Andrew's Three Pieces for
Solo Cello were premièred in New York by Romanian-born cellist
Ovidiu Marinscu at the Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall.
A collection of 14 solo piano pieces (performed by Andrew) will be released on an album entitled: "As If To Sleep" in December 2013.
