Faber Music is delighted to have signed a general publishing agreement with the acclaimed saxophonist and composer John Harle. As a composer for film and TV John has over 100 credits (perhaps the best known of which is his theme for the BBC’s long-running Silent Witness), and is the recipient of an Ivor Novello Award and two Royal Television Society Awards.
He has also composed more than 50 concert works, including four commissions from the BBC Proms. He has composed two operas and recently provided the score for Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Arcadia. Johns' album Terror and Magnificence album, with vocalist Elvis Costello, was Grammy-nominated and reached No.1 in the US Billboard charts. He more recently collaborated with Soft Cell’s Marc Almond on the progressive rock drama The Tyburn Tree.
This signing follows Faber’s publication, last year, of John’s comprehensive guide to saxophone technique: The Saxophone: The Art and Science of Playing and Performing.
