Isa Khan

Recording Engineer
Hello, here's a little bit


I specialise in classical music recording. I have worked on over 250 projects with acclaimed artists, including award-winning CDs and recordings at the UK’s most iconic venues. Alongside my own independent work, I regularly work with influential Grammy Award-winning classical engineer Tony Faulkner. The years of experience amassed with Faulkner have been instrumental in shaping my recording aesthetics. I also work closely with the classical production company Apple and Biscuit Recordings. When not on location, I can be found at the historic Dulwich College where I teach Music Technology.

Prior to working in the recording industry, I studied composition under scholarships at the Purcell School and Royal College of Music. During these formative years, I received numerous commissions from renowned ensembles including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Nash Ensemble, Endymion and Exaudi, with premieres at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall and St John’s Smith Square amongst many others. On graduating from the Royal College of Music, I was awarded the Elgar Memorial Prize in Composition for outstanding achievement.
