This site lists everything published by the Fox Edition (although some of these works are now available through the Composers Edition), offers thoughts on work-in-progress and has news of imminent performances. It is updated regularly but the topical content is not archived. There are recordings, including a 2020 interview with Robert Worby for BBC Radio 3 and the late Bob Gilmore’s documentary on my music, part of his Tentative Affinities project. There are also links to other material, such as Claire Edwarde’s video of An extraordinary mildness, Irene Kurka’s interview with me for her neue musik leben podcast and an extraordinary new film of Natural Science.
Email email@example.com if you would like to order scores, CDs or Rose Dodd’s book, Perspectives on the Music of Christopher Fox – Straight Lines in Broken Times. The Musical Times review of the book in 2017 concluded that ‘Fox’s bold estrangement of the most basic elements of classical connectedness brings experimental cool into productive interchange with that modernist turbulence, and helps to highlight his skill at crossing borders considered insurmountable by more mainstream modernists.’
The book doesn’t cover my more recent music, of which there is ever more. In 2015, for example, Ilan Volkov premiered Topophony with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and soloist Rhodri Davies (a clip from the BBC SSO performance is still on the orchestra’s web-pages) and in 2017 he premiered a version of the piece for chamber orchestra, with Yoni Silver, Ram Gabay and the Israel Contemporary Players. On HatHut there’s a CD with three recordings by Ilan and the WDR Orchestra: orchestra alone, a concert performance with Axel Dörner and Paul Lovens, and a studio version with John Butcher and Thomas Lehn.
2022 saw the release of two new albums of my music: Hieroglyphs, made with Yael Barolsky, Dan Weinstein and other marvellous musicians from Tel Aviv, was released in March, with two versions of This is the wind, as well as the extended solo works Planes and folds and Hieroglyph; and now here is Trostlieder, EXAUDI singing utterly magnificently.
