David Wright is thought to be a relative of Sir Ivor Atkins. David was a chorister, studied at RCM with Humphrey Searle, Kendall Taylor and Sir Adrian Boult. Dr Wright was an excellent piano recitalist and organist and has composed about 80 works to date including seven string quartets ,three symphonies, six piano sonatas, some intimate chamber works, the cantata Rustic Ireland and an award winning Piano Trio.
