Martin Suckling


Associate Composer with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Martin Suckling was born in Glasgow in 1981. He has been commissioned by many leading orchestras and ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, London Sinfonietta, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Recent works have explored micro-tonality from a broadly post-spectral perspective with a focus on melody and directness of expression.’

Alongside broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, members of the European Broadcasting Union, and Resonance FM, Suckling’s music has featured on a number of highly-acclaimed CDs from the Aronowitz Ensemble (Sonimage), London Sinfonietta (LS) and London Symphony Orchestra (LSO Live).

Martin is currently working on a clarinet trio for Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Jean-Guihen Queyras, and Mark Simpson, commissioned by the Aldeburgh Festival for performance in June 2015.
