The composer Adrian Sutton is perhaps best known for his music for the play War Horse, but he has a string of other credits as well [see my interview with Adrian].

He trained at Godsmiths, University of London and is returning there on Thursday 27 March 2019 for a workshop/masterclass Inside the Creative Process with Adrian Sutton in which Adrian will be discussing his varied career as a composer with Professor Mark d’Inverno, talking about the diverse range of skills and knowledge needed, and the challenges and rewards of the creative process, giving insights into what he has learned about the mechanisms of his own creativity and that of others, and what he continues to learn.

His best-known are scores are those for the National Theatre's productions War Horse, Angels in America, Coram Boy and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, which have gained him Olivier and/or Tony nominations and in the case of the latter, a joint Olivier Award for Sound Design in 2013. Away from theatre and the studio, his output includes orchestral and chamber works, among them War Horse – The Story in Concert (for orchestra, chorus and narrators) the symphonic poem War Horse Suite, A Fist Full of Fives performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra on Radio 3, a children's concert opera The Griffin and the Grail, a Sinfonietta for small orchestra, and a Double Piano Sonata.
