Paul McCartney

(1942 - )


Sir Paul McCartney, of Beatles and Wings fame, has always been expanding upon his career, often delving into a range of genres.  His venture into classical music began when he was first commissioned to write a major classical piece in 1990 by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Society, resulting in Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio. He progressed from there, with his second classical piece, A Leaf for piano, premiering in 1995. A number of chamber pieces and orchestral works have since been composed by McCartney, including the choral-orchestral symphonic poem Standing Stone, and 2006’s release, Ecce Cor Meum, his hugely successful work originally commissioned by Magdalen College, Oxford. As a result of his services to music, he was appointed a Fellow of The Royal College of Music in 1995 and a year later was knighted for his services.
