Laurence Crane was born in Oxford in 1961 and studied composition with Peter Nelson and Nigel Osborne at Nottingham University. His music is mainly written for the concert hall, although his output includes pieces initially composed for film, radio, theatre, dance and installation.

His list of works predominantly consists of instrumental chamber and ensemble music. He has worked with many ensembles in the UK and abroad, including Apartment House (UK), Plus-Minus Ensemble (UK/Belgium), Ixion (UK), London Sinfonietta (UK), Ives Ensemble (Netherlands), Orkest de Volharding (Netherlands), Cikada Ensemble (Norway), asamisimasa (Norway), Ensemble Kore (Canada) and 175 East (New Zealand). He is currently writing a work for solo contrabass clarinet and ensemble, for Norwegian clarinettist Rolf Borch and Cikada Ensemble.

Michael Finnissy has recorded Crane’s complete piano music, a disc that was released by the Divine Art/Metier CD label in 2008. Further portrait CD’s are planned by Cikada Ensemble, Ives Ensemble, Apartment House and asamisimasa.

Laurence Crane works as a freelance editor for music publishers and is on the staff of the composition department of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
