Brian Wilshere is a composer and percussion player whose orchestral and other music can be listened to and explored here.

His music has been compared to that of the American minimalists such as fellow percussionist Steve Reich. However, Brian has a distinctive and individual style, which combines the influences of minimalism and world music with a feeling for dramatic structures and a very English melodic sense.

Brian’s work has been performed by many artists including the London Mozart Players. His percussion concerto, Zodiac, written for Owen Gunnell, has received many performances since its premiere in 2001.
