Robin Fiedler was born 1988 in Neuburg an der Donau, Germany. Having been instructed on the violin, she was part of orchestras and chamber ensembles as well as folk and jazz bands, but decided to go into music management after her A-Levels. She resumed her music studies when moving to London in 2015 and passed her BA degree in voice performance with First Class Honours, studying under Mark Oldfield, Alan Mills and Jonathan Rathbone. During her studies, she discovered her passion for composition. She now studies composition with James Francis Brown.
She has been selected Runner-up (2018) and Winner (2019) of the Middlesex University Chamber Orchestra Composition Prize in two successive years, as well as the String Quartet Competition in 2019, earning her premières with the London Firebird Orchestra under
George Jackson (2018) and Michael Thrift (2019) and the renowned Allegri String Quartet (2019). Her 2018 composer residency with the London Bel Canto Festival brought about Robin's Cadogan Hall Debut of Stardust, a virtuoso piece commissioned for Danish soprano Simone Sand Victor. She was subsequently described as "a young composer to watch" by The Guardian/Observer's Stephen Pritchard. The residency brought about an ongoing collaboration with the Festival as well as a US lockdown premiere of her song “Cards and Kisses” through Christman Opera in New York.
A love for contemporary dance led to the premieres of interdisciplinary, mixed ensemble piece “Like the beat of a bird’s wing”, choreographed by Destiny Bennett-Ellis at Handel-Hendrix House, and the string quartet “My Bones will sing your name” choreographed and performed by Sadlers Wells-Alumna Cher Nicolette Ho.
A set of songs of hers will be published by Music Haven Publishing in 2023. Her participation in the Cheltenham Festival Composer Academy 2022 included a premiere of her music by Fenella Humphreys and Mahan Esfahani under guidance of Daniel Kidane. Upcoming highlights include a commission for The Arc Project in York, a crossover project as an orchestrator for Brixton Chamber Orchestra’s Grime Orchestrated Series and the participation in Adopt a Music Creator 2023 as well as premieres at the Clifton International Music Festival and Spitalfields Festival and the development of a new chamber opera "Serenoid" for Tete-a-tete Festival.
