Anthony Ritchie

Anthony Ritchie is a freelance composer and teacher, based in Dunedin, New Zealand. His early influences were predominantly from East European composers: Bart?k, Shostakovich and Stravinsky. His Ph.D study on Bart?k cultivated a strong appreciation for ethnic music, which can be heard in many of his works, ranging from Cook Island drumming in his first symphony through to gamelan influences in recent compositions. Ritchie has developed a multi-faceted and eclectic style with a vision of creating music that connects with audiences without making compromises.
