About Dobrinka Tabakova

Dobrinka Tabakova is a composer of ‘exciting, deeply moving’ music (Washington Times), with ‘glowing tonal harmonies and grand, sweeping gestures [which] convey a huge emotional depth’ (The Strad). She has been commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society, BBC Radio 3 and Britten Sinfonia. Her debut profile album ‘String Paths’, on ECM Records, was
nominated for a Grammy in 2014. Creative programmers like violist/conductor Maxim Rysanov, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, violinists Gidon Kremer and Janine Jansen as well as Irish DJ John Kelly, Orchestra of the
Swan and Sorel Organization have all championed her music over the past decade. The music of Dobrinka Tabakova has featured in films (Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Adieu au langage’), dance (Sydney Dance Company ‘Untamed’) as well as international music festivals including Schleswig-Holstein, Moscow Homecoming, Three Choirs ,UK and Dark Music Days, Iceland.
Among prizes for her work are the Jean-Frédéric Perrenoud prize and medal at the 4th Vienna International Music Competition; the prize for an anthem for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, performed at St Paul’s Cathedral, the GSMD Lutoslawski Composition Prize and the Adam Prize of King’s College London. In 2011 she was awarded first prize and the Sorel Medallion in Choral Composition, New York. Recent and current projects include ‘Immortal Shakespeare’- a cantata for the Shakespeare 400 anniversary in 2016, bringing together rare J.M.W. Turner sketches of a trip to Stratfordupon-
Avon and Shakespeare’s timeless words; also ‘The High Line’ for orchestra inspired by New York’s park in the sky and the UK New Music Biennial film collaboration ‘PULSE’. Forthcoming highlights include the 2016/17season collaboration with choreographer Rafael Bonachela and the Sydney Dance Company and a residency with the Leipzig MDR Orchestra. Dobrinka Tabakova was born in the historic town of Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1980 and for the past 25 years has lived in London. She graduated from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and holds a PhD in composition from King’s College, London.
