Richard Lambert was born in Bath, UK. His earlier compositions were influenced by twentieth-century mainstream styles, with traces of jazz and popular music. His more recent music uses a freely atonal idiom or strict twelve-note techniques, combined with closely worked structures. He worked with composers Elizabeth Poston and Malcolm Williamson over many years; with Sebastian Forbes at the University of Surrey, and more recently, with Francis Pott at the University of West London. After 34 years of teaching he has since reinvented himself: his life is now a mixture of quiet composing, a busy travel schedule as a Senior Examiner for the London College of Music and working as an organist and pianist. Richard has written a highly successful GCSE music guide, published by Longman (Pearson Education). He is a member of ALCS (Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society Ltd), and PRS for Music. In 2011 he was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and in 2015 he was awarded an FLCM in composition. www.richardlambertmusic.co.uk
