Info for Finding Time

Acclaimed composer Andrew Skeet has a musical background more eclectic than most. Widely known for his compositions for film and television, he was a gifted boy treble, appearing at Glyndebourne and on tour with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and is also a member of critically lauded rock band ‘The Divine Comedy.’ Often referred to as the British Einaudi, Skeet is currently one of London’s busiest orchestrators, arrangers and conductors.

„Finding Time“ is Andrew Skeet's début album on Sony Classical. For Andrew, recording the album has been a welcome experience, giving him eagerly awaited time and space to present his own inner musical core. The world of the moving image has always been very important to him and this album has enabled Andrew to showcase many of those filmic influences, creating music best characterised as beautiful, atmospheric and involving.

„Finding Time, however, sees Skeet drift beautifully into territory influenced (casually, subtly) by Michael Nyman and byweighty personal/emotional themes. Temporal matters are to the fore: the passing of time, killing time, taking time off, and – referencing WH Auden’s classicpoem Funeral Blues – stopping time. It all adds up to sublime, reflective music that can often stop you from thinking. How good is that?“ (Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times)
