Patrick’s ability to write truly memorable and beautiful music means that he has been much in demand over the past couple of years, in which time he has emerged as one of the most popular contemporary classical English composers.
Within weeks of its release in January 2004, his debut album Blue in Blue stormed the classical charts and was made ‘CD of the Week’ on Classic FM. Subsequently it was voted the fastest and highest new entry into the ‘Hall of Fame’ by the Classic FM audience. Several of his pieces have become standard listening on the airwaves, and one of the hit tracks, ‘Quanta Qualia’, features on Hayley Westenra’s new album Odyssey.
Patrick was Classic FM’s ‘Composer in Residence’ from 2006 to 2008.
