(b 1932 )

Born in Dublin in 1932, the Irish composer John Kinsella combined composition with a career in music administration until 1988, when he left his position as Head of Music at Radio Telefís Éireann, Ireland’s national broadcasting organisation, to concentrate on composition. Since then he has completed five symphonies, a second violin concerto, a fourth string quartet and works for other ensembles and solo instruments. Until the 1970s his style was governed by an adherence to serial techniques, but since then his music has become freer and more overtly expressive. In 1979 he was the first Irish composer to receive the Martin Toonder Award and his many commissions include one from the Irish Government, in the same year, to celebrate the Pearse Centenary.
