Aaron Holloway Nahum

Composer : Conductor : Recording Engineer

Aaron Holloway-Nahum (b. 1983) is one of his generation’s leading composers, conductors and recording engineers.   

Characterized by its detailed and ornate timbres, bold melodic unisons, and experimental narrative structures, Aaron’s music has been performed in nearly twenty countries. He was one of two composers on the 2018/19 Peter Eötvös Foundation inaugural mentoring programme and his commissions include the BBC Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Plural Ensemble, The Pannon Philharmonic, HOCKET, the London Sinfonietta, Third Coast Percussion, Ensemble Chartreuse, duo Harperc and the Atea Wind Quintet.

Aaron’s career combines this compositional knowledge with a variety of additional skills: As a conductor and arts entrepreneur, he most prominently serves as the conductor, Chief Executive, and Artistic Director of Riot Ensemble, an organization that gives two-dozen performances per year and has premiered over 250 original works. As a recording engineer and managing director of Coviello Productions, his clientele includes the Arditti Quartet, Sandbox Percussion, and Ensemble Intercontemporain.  Aaron lives in London with his wife and two sons.
