Ian Assersohn (b. 1958) is an award-winning composer, arranger, workshop leader and choral director whose works are widely performed both in the UK and abroad. By turns beautiful and haunting, or energetic and rhythmical, his work is approachable and enjoyed by performers and audiences alike.
Ian’s large-scale works include: Dies Irae, a cantata of remembrance for three choirs, soloists and orchestra, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, an entertainment for adult and children’s choirs first performed by The Bach Choir, Air and Angels for baritone solo, choir, brass quintet, timpani and piano, and Ionian Mass, a secular work for mixed choir and piano. He has also written over 80 smaller-scale original works and arrangements for choirs of all types.
Ian is published by OUP and Novello, among others, and his music appears in a number of anthologies including The Oxford Book Of Easy Flexible Anthems, The Novello Book of British Folksongs and The Oxford Book of Flexible Choral Songs. The rest is published by Apple Tree Music and is available to buy on AppleTreeMusic.net.
