Born in the UK in 1982, Charlotte Bray studied with Joe Cutler and graduated from Birmingham Conservatoire with First Class Honours. Then, with Mark Anthony Turnage, she completed her Masters at the Royal College of Music in 2008 gaining a Distinction. She studied at Tanglewood Music Centre in 2008, and in 2011 was made an Honorary Member of Birmingham Conservatoire. She has won numerous prizes, including the RPS composition prize in 2010. During Brays residency with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (2009/10), Alexandra Wood premiered her violin concerto Caught in Treetops under Oliver Knussen. The concerto appeared also in Aldeburgh Festivals closing concert in 2011.

Bayan Northcott writes Charlotte Bray was 21 when she took to composing in earnest. Yet in scarcely more than a decade, she has built up a substantial catalogue of works in almost all the standard genres; built up, too, a professional reputation of a composer who works hard and always delivers. Not least, she has refined a compositional style and practice for herself, neither explicitly tonal nor atonal, but always cogent in its harmonic unfolding token of an independent spirit from which much may be expected.

At the Speed of Stillness explores paradoxes of energy and movement. This recording features Aldeburgh World Orchestra under the direction of Sir Mark Elder.
