Michael Stimpson has composed for some of the UK's most distinguished artists in the classical music industry. Performances include the English Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Allegri String Quartet, Maggini Quartet, Bristol Bach Choir, Exmoor Singers of London, Paul Agnew, David Campbell, Philippe Graffin, and Sioned Williams. The capital's foremost venues have hosted performances of his work: the Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Cadogan Hall, Purcell Room, and St. John's Smith Square. A number of festivals in the UK have included his works, and international recognition has prompted performances in Europe, the USA, and Australia. On 2014, his major work Age of Wonders will be recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra.
