Stephen Ware
Stephen Ware is a freelance musician and programmer.
He studied musical theory under John Wray at CLS, and piano under Emil Philippe at the Guildhall School of Music
in London, and oboe under Joy Boughton; and he played oboe and also double-bass in the London Medical Orchestra. He was a children’s doctor in Southeast England for many years and retired in 2007 to spend more time with his music. Stephen builds his own virtual orchestras with samples from
professional libraries within Kontakt, hosted by Plogue Bidule, and controls them with his own recording sequencing and editing software, programmed in Steem (an Atari ST emulator written by Russ and Anthony Hayward.) He has provided orchestral background for five Music Minus One recordings, including Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat and Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1 in A Minor.
