Anthony Hedges’ output is as varied as his career and reflects the many paths this hardworking composer has chosen to take. A prolific output seems even more impressive when considered in conjunction with his many achievements in the field of music as lecturer, writer, accompanist and conductor. His distinctive musical voice has proved sufficiently versatile to enable him to embrace many genres persuasively, including symphonies, an opera, chamber music, solo instrumental works and scores for films, theatre and television. There are many pieces for children (frequently included in grade examination lists), works for amateur musicians and - notably - distinguished contributions to the medium of ‘light music’.
