This year’s batch of Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists include three Composer Awards. Chris Batchelor, Tansy Davies and Philip Jeck each receive £45,000 spread over three years, ensuring they have “the freedom to develop their creative ideas and to contribute to their personal and professional growth”.

Batchelor was the 2001 winner of the BBC Jazz Award for Best New Work, and this year released Big Air on Babel with Steve Buckley and Myra Melford. Davies has composed works for the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group conducted by Thomas Adès. In 2010 she will work on a BBC Symphony commission for the Proms. Jeck’s “Vinyl Requiem” won the Time Out Performance Award in 1993. He has composed scores for dance and theatre companies, and recently created the audio-visual Suffolk Symphony for Aldeburgh Music’s Faster than Sound programme.

2009 Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards were also granted to five Visual Arts recipients - Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Mark Dean, Melanie Gilligan, Seamus Harahan and Mary Redmond.
