Re-emerging after the Pandemic

The last 12 months have been a remarkable challenge for all of working across the arts and it was with great sadness that many of my projects due to take place in 2020 (and even early 2021) had to be postponed.

However, I was absolutely delighted earlier this week to be able to attend the premiere of two new works for Basset Clarinet with the wonderful Mark van de Wiel playing for the London Sinfonietta, in person at King’s Place. What a superb feeling to hear my music in a live concert hall after all this time! You can catch the performance (and discussion hosted by Zoë Martlew) below.

Despite some large projects still being on hold, a few chamber music premieres will be happening this year. Many of these haven’t been officially announced yet, but do stay posted, and I’ll update my website and mailing list when official confirmation comes in.

In the meantime, a little preview of a piece that will premiere in full later this year, “A Light Dusting” from Five Highland Scenes, will be heard on BBC Radio 3 on April 13th at 19:30.
