Kendall, Hannah

Hannah Kendall, born in London in 1984, is based in New York City as a Doctoral Fellow in composition at Columbia University with Georg Friedrich Haas and George E. Lewis. She majored in vocal studies and composition at the University of Exeter and gained a master’s at the Royal College of Music. Kendall is the recipient of the 2022 Hindemith Prize for music composition.

Known for her attentive arrangements and immersive world-building, Hannah Kendall’s music looks beyond the boundaries of composition: “Conjuring evocative imagery within dramatic constructs form the main components of my compositional style. I sometimes draw on aspects of my African-Caribbean-European heritage; finding ways to garner a deeper understanding of how musical engagement through cultural discovery might influence my music’s aesthetics.”

Her upcoming world premieres include shouting forever into the receiver for Ensemble Modern at Donaueschinger Musiktage 2022, … I may turn to salt for the New Century Chamber Orchestra in California, May 2023, and a London Symphony Orchestra commission for autumn 2023.
