Notes & Reviews:

Rob Keeley was born in Bridgend in 1960. He studied with Oliver Knussen at the Royal College of Music, Magdalen College Oxford under Bernard Rose, and later with Robert Saxton. As a pianist Keeley has premiered works by, among others, Harrison Birtwistle, Michael Finnissy, Jonathan Cole, Richard Emsley and Nicola Moro. He is currently Senior Lecturer in Composition at King's College, London
Bayan Northcott writes ... Rob Keeley is both a 'natural' as a composer, and a bit of an enigma. While his music always unfolds lucidly, often engagingly, it resists easy categorization - at least accordingly to current critical notions.

Sunday Times, 29th April 2012
In a musical age of gesture and ideology, Keeley (b1960) is a composer who quietly continues the classical art of putting note against note. These seven instrumental and chamber pieces, none exceeding 14 minutes, are a living testament to the virtues of concision and aural exactitude.
