Anne Nikitin

Anne Nikitin

Anne won the New TV Composers scheme in 2006. She was awarded the commission to write the music for a BBC natural history programme which will be broadcast in the Autumn of 2007.


Entrants to the New Talent / Natural History Unit competition were asked to create a three-minute composition to accompany a natural history film clip.


Watch Galapagos accompanied by Anne's composition.

After submitting her Galapagos composition, Anne was one of 12 finalists chosen to take part in a two day master class with some of the best in the business with the opportunity to conduct the BBC Concert Orchestra at Angel Studios, under the mentorship of George Fenton.


The master class provided invaluable information on how to break into this unrelenting industry, not to mention allowing me the opportunity to meet some fantastic people. Finally somebody has paid attention to us film and TV composers! Thank you BBC!


Anne's musical background

After Anne's ambition to be a rock star waned, (due to her self confessed lack of cool and inability to sing), she developed a passion for composing orchestral scores.


Anne graduated with a Masters in Composition for Screen from The Royal College of Music and has been working on a number of productions ever since.


Anne enjoys combining ethnic sounds with classical western ensembles, her particular attraction to East European folk music is inherited from her Romanian mother and Polish father.
