Roger Redgate


Roger Redgate (born 1958) is a British composer, conductor and improvisor.

He studied music at the Royal College of Music in London, studying violin, piano, composition and electronic music. Later he studied composition with Edwin Roxburgh. A scholarship allowed him to extend his studies in Germany where he studied composition with Brian Fernyhough.[citation needed]

He is considered[according to whom?] to belong to the British "new complexity" school of composers.[citation needed]
