Sarah Lianne Lewis (b.1988) is a Welsh composer, living in the Vale of Glamorgan. Her music is influenced by her native Welsh landscapes, Japanese poetry, and the architecture of performance spaces, and has been described as “quiet and delicate” (Matthias Roth, Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, 2016), and “full of imaginative sonorities” (Steph Power, Wales Arts Review, 2016).
She studied at Cardiff University (2006-2011), receiving a BA 2:1 (Hons) in Music and History, and an MMus in Composition. Since graduating, she has received several commissions and performances from UK and European festivals, and has enjoyed leading educational workshops, and holding public masterclasses discussing her music.
She has recently worked with Quatuor Bozzini through Sound and Music’s Embedded/Composers’ Kitchen residency, and with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (ManiFeste Academie 2017). She is currently working on commissions for UPROAR ensemble, and a Violin Sonata for Mary Hofman and Richard Ormrod.
