Initially a geneticist, Tara Guram (b. 1971) was subsequently a prize-winning postgraduate student at the Royal College of Music, where she studied with Edwin Roxburgh. Her music has been played throughout Britain, broadcast on BBC Radio 3, recorded with Sargasso Records, published in the Compendium Musicae Flauta 2020, and performed in Mexico, Germany, Switzerland, France, and Jordan.

Previous commissions have included pieces for the Brighton Festival, the International Harp Festival, and the Sound and Image Festival in Bonn. Several U.K. based instrumentalists and ensembles have commissioned Guram, including Street Orchestra Live, and the flute and piano duo Animo, who recorded and released Guram’s Requiem in 2021. 

Guram has recently begun writing for media, and has been signed by the U.K. based music production company Media Tracks; she is currently writing and recording her debut albums for them. Guram’s piece for violin and electronics will be streamed by NMC Recordings in April 2022 as part of their Big Lockdown Project funded by the Arts Council.

Solo Instrumental
Acclaimed pianist Anna Kislitsyna stuns on PIANO SPECTRUMS, a profoundly emotive selection of aesthetic contemporary pieces – and a world-class interpretation ranging from tender filigree to unbridled, seething virtuosity. Ten contemporary composers share their works on this album with an eclectic program, both in terms of styles and subject matters. All the more outstanding, then, is how Kislitsyna scintillates with her wonderful, singing touch and musical sensitivity, effortlessly unifying ten unique voices into an album that is greater than the sum of its parts.
