Described as “a composer of profound sensibility”, Scottish-American Jennifer Margaret Barker has received performances of her compositions on six continents by a wide variety of symphonies, choral ensembles, chamber ensembles and soloists. Her heart, however, remains with chamber music. At the tender age of seven, chamber music was added to Barker's musical training: from Leighton to Elgar and Brahms. As a twelve-year old pianist, she and her quartet members were labelled "The Un-Giants" when they won the 'Under 18' Chamber Music category at the Edinburgh Music Festival. Consequently, a youth spent enveloped in piano trios and piano quartets has left a lasting impression on her compositional style and output.
