Finn Mattingly is a composer from the north shore of Boston, Massachusetts. Currently, he is an undergraduate Humphrey Searle Scholar at the Royal College of Music in London under Kenneth Hesketh. Additional studies include a term abroad at Det Kongelige Danske Musikkonservatorium (the Royal Danish Academy of Music) in the fall of 2023. While still in high school, he studied with Rodney Lister at the New England Conservatory Preparatory School and Kyle Blaha at the New York Youth Symphony. Finn has written a variety of solo, chamber, choral, and orchestral works for musicians such as Bridget Kibbey, Peter Miyamoto, and the Aizuri and Julius Quartets. His solo violin piece for Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, Seaside Contemplation, received recognition in Tribeca New Music’s 2021 Young Composer Competition, and he is the recipient of American Prize Honorable Mention recognition. Finn has recently collaborated on a new piece for the emerging cello duo the Adamo Duo, and has had his music featured by various large chamber ensembles at the RCM, while his orchestral works have been workshopped at a variety of festivals. A keen interdisciplinary collaborator, he is currently designing an installation with an architect to explore the interaction between physical space and sound. Finn’s piano trio, recorded by the Fidelio Trio, has been featured in PRXLUDES Magazine. Finn has presented music in masterclasses with Gabriella Smith, Ryan Latimer, Martin Bresnick, Pamela Z, Nico Muhly, and Kati Agócs, and has attended the Cascade Composers Workshop, Brevard Music Center, Atlantic Music Festival, Curtis’s Young Artists Summer Program, and Boston Conservatory’s High School Composition Intensive. Since arriving in the UK, he has remained active as a collaborative composer through both writing for a variety of ensembles and beginning a series of collaborative pieces for solo instruments and electronics, working in a back-and-forth manner with soloists based around Europe and America.
