From age 13 Alan Griffiths had a deep urge to write music, and began composing his own classical music. At age 18, after a brief stint in the New Zealand Army Band as a keyboard player, Griffiths moved to Australia, where he sought private study with professional composers.
Griffiths studied with the late Michael Easton, then with Dr Allan Zavod. Under Zavod’s guidance Griffiths’ music became freer and more widely expressive. He went on to score for dozens of plays, corporates, and short films and two feature films.
Introspection Volume 1 is the first of a collection of albums Griffiths will be releasing featuring his solo piano and chamber work.
