Emeritus Professor Nigel Osborne MBE (born 23 June 1948, Manchester, England) is a British composer, teacher and aid worker. He served as Reid Professor of Music[1] at the University of Edinburgh and has also taught at the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. He is known for his extensive charity work supporting war traumatised children using Music Therapy techniques, especially in the Balkans during the disastrous Bosnian War,[2][3][4] and in the current Syrian conflict.[5][6] He is fluent in eight languages.[7]

Osborne was born in Manchester, England, to a Scottish family. He studied composition with Kenneth Leighton, Egon Wellesz, and Witold Rudziński. His compositions include the opera The Electrification of the Soviet Union,[8] Concerto for Flute and Chamber Orchestra[9] commissioned by the City of London Sinfonia, I am Goya,[10] Remembering Esenin,[11] and Birth of the Beatles Symphony.[12]

Professor Osborne retired from his Edinburgh University position in 2012, and is now working internationally as freelance composer, arranger and aid worker.

Career[edit]

Nigel Osborne studied composition with Egon Wellesz, the first pupil of Arnold Schoenberg (1968-9), also with Kenneth Leighton (his predecessor as Reid Professor of Music at the University of Edinburgh) at Oxford University (1969–70), and later in Warsaw with Witold Rudzinski (1970–71) where he also he worked in the Polish Radio Experimental Studio.[13] From 1983-1985 while at the IRCAM in Paris, he co-founded Contemporary Music Review[14] with Tod Machover. He held a lectureship and Special Professorship at the University of Nottingham from 1978 to 1987, the Reid Chair and Dean of the Faculty of Music at Edinburgh University from 1989 to 2012, a Senior Professorship (C4) at the University of Hannover from 1996–98 and Head of Faculty for the Vienna-Prague-Budapest Summer Academy (ISA) from 2007-2014. He is currently Professor Emeritus at Edinburgh University, visiting Professor in the Drama Faculty of Rijeka University and Consultant to the Chinese Music Institute, Peking University.[15] He has worked as visiting lecturer and examiner also at Harvard, UCLA, CalArts, Gedai and Toho Gakuen School of Music, Oxford, the Sorbonne and Bologna.

Osborne's works have been performed around the world by major orchestras and opera houses, including the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Symphony Orchestra, Leningrad Philharmonic, the Philharmonia of London, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony, Glyndebourne, Opera Circus, Opera Factory, Scottish Opera and the Royal Opera House.[16] He has received, among numerous awards, a Netherlands Gaudeamus prize, the Opera Prize of the Radio Sussie Romande and Ville de Geneve, and the Koussevitzky Award of the Library of Congress Washington. He also composes for theatre and film and has a “secret history” of work in popular music and rock ’n roll - he plays in a heavy metal band (The Godfather) with his son Ruaraidh.

In the 1980s, Osborne composed a series of "classic works" for choreographer Richard Alston and Ballet Rambert.[17] He has been Master of Music at the Shakespeare's Globe (1999-2000),[18] and is currently “house composer” for Ulysses Theatre, Istria (2000-). He has collaborated with notable directors Lenka Udovicki, Peter Sellars, David Pountney, Michael McCarthy and David Freeman, with notable writers Samuel Beckett, Craig Raine, Eve Ensler, Jo Shapcott, Howard Barker, Ariel Dorfman, Tena Stivicic and Goran Simić, with notable actors Vanessa Redgrave, Annette Bening, Lynn Redgrave, Amanda Plummer, Rade Serbedzija, Simon Callow, Ian McDiarmid and Janet Henfrey, and with notable artists and designers John Hoyland, Dick Smith, George Tsypin, David Roger, Bjanka Adzic Ursulov and Peter Mumford. Singers and soloists include pioneers of contemporary music, such as Jane Manning, Linda Hirst, Liz Lawrence and Omar Ebrahim, and long-standing collaborations with artists Florian Kitt, Ernst Kovacic and the Hebrides Ensemble. His film documentary credits[19] include BAFTA-winning and -nominated collaborations with Director Samir Mehanović, an EMMY-winning collaboration with the BBC, and multi-award- winning films with Helen Doyle and InformAction, Montreal.

Osborne has pioneered methods of using music and the creative arts to support children who are victims of conflict.[22] This approach was developed during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1992–95), and since then this work has been implemented widely in the Balkan region,[23] the Caucasus',[24] the Middle East,[25] East Africa, South East Asia and India.[26] He was also awarded the Freedom Prize of the Peace Institute, Sarajevo, for his work for Bosnian children during the siege of the city.[27][28] He has worked actively in many human rights initiatives, including the Workers' Defence Committee in Poland (1970–89), Citizens’ Forum and the Jazz Section with Václav Havel in former Czechoslovakia (1987-l989), for Syrian refugee support organisations and directly for the Government of Bosnia-Herzegovina during the genocide.[29] In 2012-14, Osborne served as co-Chair of the Global Agenda Committee for Arts in Society for the World Economic Forum.[30]

Osborne has been active in supporting the development of new music technologies, for example the Skoog, (skoogmusic.com), and is co-inventor with Paul Robertson of X-System,[31] an informatic modelling of the musical brain capable of predicting emotional response to music of any culture, designed for both medical and leisure applications. He is currently a field worker for SAWA for Development and Aid in Lebanon. In December 2017 he received the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers, and Authors' (BASCA) Award for Inspiration. He continues to work in special education development in Scotland, Sweden, Croatia and India. He was awarded both the Queen’s Prize and Music Industry Prize for innovation in education, and was recently made Honorary Fellow of the Educational Institute of Scotland. He is a Director of the Scottish educational development company, Tapestry Partnership.[32]

In recent months, Osborne has been working on an opera/film with Ulysses Theatre and Paradiso Films on the Cambridge Spies, a musical/ecological work for Khazanah, Kuala Lumpur, a cantata based on the experiences of refugees for CoMA (Contemporary Music for Amateurs). He is currently working on a joint composition with Peter Nelson and Owen Underhill for the Cambridge Music Festival, Fringe Percussion and choreographer Henry Daniel in Vancouver, and helping prepare a CD of his works to be recorded as a celebration of his 70th birthday by the Hebrides Ensemble for Delphian Records. In August 2018, Osborne will be the Keynote Speaker at the Princess Galyani Vadhana Institute of Music.[36] He is also assisting citizens of Matera in Basilicata, Italy, in the creation of a community opera to be performed in its year as European City of Culture (2019).
