Welcome to the personal website of Mark Gotham: composer / conductor / scholar.

You will find here a short introduction to some of the projects I am working on at the moment. Please do get in touch if you have questions about me or my work. By way of short introduction, here is a brief biography that can be freely used for concert programmes etc.:
