F. L. Dunkin Wedd
Born: 21 March 1955
'F L Dunkin Wedd was born at Chiddingstone Castle, Kent in 1955. He studied piano and cello at school, and sang in the choir; as a teenager he played guitar and wrote material for folk and jazz groups; in adulthood he plays viola.
Composition came naturally; even before he could read music he was writing it - with his elder sister as reluctant amanuensis! But he did not settle down to serious composition until the 1980s, when he studied with Peter Aviss and Barry Seaman.
His piece Dimitri’s Train won first prize in its category in the London Chamber Group Piece of the Year competition of 2003, winning best piece for string quartet and wind solo.
His works include symphonic and choral music; songs; chamber music for piano, wind, brass and strings, and music for a film.
F L Dunkin Wedd is a member of the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters.
