Colin Bayliss was born in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire in 1948. His life-long love of music led him to compose from an early age and he now has a catalogue of over a hundred works including two operas, four symphonies, six concertos, six string quartets and many other pieces for most instrumental and chamber groupings. He is the Secretary of the North West Composers' Association and a member of the Performing Rights Society. As well as writing music himself, he has also compiled catalogues of the works of Anthony Hedges and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. His concern for the state of music publishing led him to found his own company in 1992 - Da Capo Music Ltd. This company has to date published nearly 600 pieces, mainly of today's composers, and also some recently discovered pieces and arrangements of works by composers of the past. It has also begun to record some of these works on compact disc under the New Century Classics label.
