In January 2019, BBC Radio 3 broadcast a 20-minute feature on Edmund’s choral composition, Vita Hominum, which was written for Newcastle based choir The Singers for the Adopt A Composer scheme. In 2018, Edmund was appointed the Rosie Johnson Royal Philharmonic Society/Wigmore Hall Apprentice Composer, leading to a new work for Diphonon Duo (accordion and viola), premiered at the Wigmore Hall in June 2018. In April 2018, he was selected for Sound and Music’s ‘New Voices’ composer development scheme, receiving funding and support to compose a work for string quartet, live electronics and dance. In 2017–2018, Edmund was a participant on the ‘Composing for Flute and Clarinet’ composer development project, run by Manchester based new music ensemble Psappha.
Edmund’s music has been performed in contemporary music festivals across Europe, including MusicCurrent (Dublin, 2017), Composit Academy (Italy, 2014) and IConArts (Romania, 2014). In 2014, Edmund’s orchestral piece ‘Argatnél’ was premiered by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, as part of the LPO’s Leverhulme Young Composers’ Programme.
