Gough, Christopher

Christopher Gough (b.1991) studies horn and composition at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music. Prizes which Christopher has won through his composition include the Music for Youth Composer’s prize, the RNCM Young Composer for Brass band, and most recently, runner-up for the Associated Board international young composer’s competition. 

‘Pour une Perte’, was written by Christopher as a salute to the loss of his twin brother. The sentimental sound quality of the horn and large dynamic range are exploited by the piece’s long lyrical phrases and warm textures.

'Highland Calling' was written for the 2010 British Horn Society conference in Edinburgh for the RSAMD Horn ensemble and is designed so that the horn players can be placed around the room.
