University Edition | New Zealand Series Gareth Watkins / Lilburn Trust / Wallace Arts Trust Anthony Ritchie (1960) Anthony Ritchie studied composition at the University of Canterbury, and completed a Ph.D on the music of Bartók. He studied composition at the Liszt Academy in Hungary, before becoming Composer-in-Schools in Christchurch, in 1987. He moved to Dunedin in 1988 to be Mozart Fellow in composition at the University of Otago, and later was Composer-in-Residence with the Dunedin Sinfonia, where he completed his first symphony, Boum. He has written over 150 works, with many being performed internationally. He is currently Professor in the Department of Music, Theatre and Performing Arts at the University of Otago. Ritchie’s early influences were predominantly from Eastern European composers: Bartók, Shostakovich and Stravinsky. His Ph.D study on Bartók cultivated a strong appreciation for ethnic music, which can be heard in much of his music, ranging from Cook Island drumming in his first symphony through to gamelan influences in recent compositions. In 1988 he became interested in the so-called minimalists, and the music of John Adams in particular, and this influence is felt in his best-known work from this period, The Hanging Bulb. Ritchie’s career as a freelancer in the 1990s led to the development of a multi-faceted, eclectic style. He has remained true to his vision, however, of creating music that connects with audiences without making compromises. Revelations (1998), for orchestra, signified a change in direction, and since 2000 Ritchie has integrated more abstract elements into his intuitive approach to composition, such as the use of magic squares to generate thematic ideas. Symphony No.3 (UME01) represents a good summary of this new style: edgy, dissonant motifs and harmonies jostle with intuitive, natural rhythms and colourful orchestration to produce a wide range of emotions. The music still communicates but is more challenging and bold. Ritchie worked as a freelance composer from 1995-2002, commissioned to write works for performers including the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Class Act Opera, and The Australian Song Company. In 2000 his second symphony, The Widening Gyre, was premiered by the Auckland Philharmonia at the International Festival of the Arts. The comic opera Quartet was later featured at the same festival in 2004 and in the same year his opera The God Boy was premiered at the Otago Festival of the Arts to critical acclaim. Ritchie’s overture A Bugle Will Do was recorded for radio by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, while his song cycle Salaam was premiered in Belgium by Aquarius and French Overture was performed by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra.
