Anne Dudley has been the BBC Concert Orchestra's Composer in Association since January 2002.
Her abilities in both the classical and pop genres make her unique in her approach.
Trained as a classical performer, Anne then moved to the competitive commercial field as a session musician, where her professional relationship with Trevor Horn began and also her work with groups such as ABC and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. She was a founding member of The Art Of Noise, whose pioneering attitude towards sampling has extended to music production of today.
Anne's music for film includes The Crying Game and Buster, and in 1998 she won an Oscar for The Full Monty ("Best Original Score") - now the highest grossing film in the UK of all time. Her TV music includes scores for Kavanagh Q.C, Jeeves & Wooster and The Perfect Blue.
