DOUGLAS WEILAND (b 1954 )
The English composer Douglas Gordon Weiland (born 16 April 1954 in Malvern, Worcestershire) is the late Sir Neville Marriner’s most commissioned composer with three major orchestral works spanning 1992 to 2006: Divertimento for Strings (1992), Clarinet Concerto (2002) and Triple Concerto (2006). Along with the Fourth and Fifth Quartets (2011 and 2012 respectively) for William Hennessy AM, a large-scale Flute Concerto (2014) for Susan Milan and a newly commissioned choral orchestral Requiem, Op. 59 (2019), these works represent the pinnacle of his artistic contribution today. Weiland’s complete works are to be held in the Schusterwerkstatt at the Brahms Museum, Mürzzuschlag, Austria.
