Welcome to the official website for British composer Keith Burstein.


"A contemporary master of tonality."
- David Sonin, music critic
(writing on the first movement of Symphony 'Elixir')




'Manifest Destiny 2011' - a work about the power of love over violence and conflict - completed its run at the Kings Head Theatre, London at the end of September 2011.

The production provoked a mixture of very positive and some very negative reviews, as is to be expected with a work of such controversial history. Among the reviews received were these ones at Bachtrack, The Good Review, Spoonfed and West End/Broadway World.

The production was recorded for archives - both as a sound recording and as a video recording.

Keith Burstein is currently working on 'Empress of America' - the second opera in the trilogy sequence 'The Flame' (of which 'Manifest Destiny 2011' is the first part).

Work also continues on arrangements for a new performance and recording of Symphony 'Elixir' in its entirety. News on this will be updated shortly.
