A complete listing of compositions by Adrian Self (b. 1952)

 

 Adrian Self

Only a few of my compositions are listed in the main animus  catalogue.  This is partly due to modesty (and there is probably much to be modest about) but also to avoid clogging up the main pages on this website.  However, I have been asked from time to time, what else is available, so this is a comprehensive current (January 2017) list.  

Most pieces have been performed and many have been reviewed,  but there is absolutely no point in including reviews as no composer would include the less than complimentary ones!

If anything interests you do please feel free to drop me an email and I will be pleased to send you a copy to study.
