Composer Sarah Rimkus on Maria Sibylla Merian, metamorphosis and her Composeher commission for Glasgow School of Art Choir

Composer Sarah Rimkus writes about the inspiration behind her Composeher commission for Glasgow School of Art Choir, the pioneering scientist, painter and illustrator Maria Sibylla Merian, and metamorphosis, growth and change.

Sarah is an award winning composer and doctoral graduate from Aberdeen University. She is inspired by the British choral tradition, often curating texts for her vocal music from historical and current events, and exploring the intimacy of instrumental relationships in chamber music. She is also an active supporter and teacher of young composers.
