Jane Antonia Cornish is a British Academy Award winning composer who grew up in England and lives in New York City. Cornish has written music for both the concert hall and films. She was Composer in Residence at the inaugural Chelsea Music Festival, created by conductor and Grammy nominated producer Ken David Masur and Steinway artist Melinda Lee Masur. The festival, which The New York Times described as “a gem of a series,” gave Duende its world premiere.

Continuum is her second chamber music album, to be released July 31 by Innova Recordings. Performed by Decoda -- the first ever Affiliate Ensemble of Carnegie Hall -- these four world premiere recordings of chamber works explore terrain as disparate as the cyclic nature of the ocean’s tides, our relationship to space and memory, and deep connections to place. The release follows Cornish’s Duende, which the American Record Guide described as “a program of bold, thoughtful, mesmerizing chamber music” -- a description that could apply equally well to Continuum. In the world of film scoring, she wrote the music for the drama Fireflies in the Garden, starring Julia Roberts, Ryan Reynolds and Willem Dafoe. She has orchestrated the music for many Hollywood films, including Once Upon a Dream for Maleficient starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, and the title song for Big Eyes, starring Amy Adams and Christopher Waltz.

She has received a Special Distinction from the ASCAP Foundation's Rudolf Nissim Prize jury for her orchestral tone poem, Symphony, a Danish Academy Award nomination and a Movie Music UK award for her score to Island of Lost Souls. The International Film Music Critics Association nominated Cornish for Breakthrough Composer of the Year, and in 2005 the UK Film Council honored her with a Breakthrough Brit in Hollywood award. Jane Antonia Cornish studied composition at The Royal Northern College of Music with Anthony Gilbert, where she was made a Major Scholar. She received the Royal Northern College of Music Composition Prize and was a recipient of the Associated Board's Most Outstanding Scholar of the Year award. She went on to complete her postgraduate degree at the Royal College of Music, London. Read more on Last.fm.
