New Year, 2018

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!

I’ve kicked mine off with many notes flying around for London Sinfonietta; a new work conducted by Peter Rundel will be premiered in the newly renovated Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre, May 16th.

Super excited to work with Ralf Ehlers and Lucas Fels of the Arditti Quartet. New pieces written by Brian Ferneyhough, Milica Djordjevic, Tom Coult and myself, commissioned in tribute to one of contemporary music’s most important supporters, Leo Hepner. Hope to see you there: May 29th in the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre.

I am making the second recording of my music, featuring chamber works I’ve written over the past 7 years. A huge thanks upfront to the Richard Thomas Foundation for producing this. The PRS Foundation have awarded me a ‘Composer Fund’ grant which will help immensely towards funding the recording. Totally thrilled to be working with Huw Watkins, Mariani Klavierquartett, Amaryllis Quartett, Isidore Ducasse Clarinet Trio and Tonemeister Christoph Franke at the Sendesaal in Bremen.

Also to come, a new piece for Tabea Zimmermann commissioned by Festival d’Aix-en-Provence – Page officielle, premiere July 13th.

I better get back to composing 🙂
