Niall Byrne IFTA AwardsComposer, Niall Byrne’s score for the BBC film, “Loving Miss Hatto”, has won Best Original Score at this year’s Irish Film and TV Awards. The film, written by Victoria Wood and directed by Aisling Walsh, tells the story of the life of concert pianist, Joyce Hatto, her relationship with her husband and the controversial recordings that made her famous late in life. Niall picked up his award at the Gala Awards Ceremony at the Convention Centre Dublin on Friday evening on the 10th anniversary of the awards.

Niall studied Piano and Composition at the Royal Irish Academy of Music.  He was awarded first prize at the 1992 Dublin Film Festival’s music competition, chaired by composer Michael Nyman.  Since then he has composed music for feature films and television dramas both in Ireland and abroad.  He also pursues personal music projects and received a Music Bursary in 2012 from the Arts Council to compose ‘The Promenade’, a solo piano album due for release in Spring, 2013.  He has received several IFTA award nominations in the past, including a Best Music in Film nomination for “Parked” starring Colm Meaney and Colin Morgan in 2010 and Best Music in Film nomination for “Small Engine Repair” in 2007.
