Charlotte wins an Ivor Novello Award

Charlotte’s work Invisible Cities, for viola and piano, has won an Ivor Novello Award in the Solo or Duo category.

The piece was commissioned by Verbier Festival and written for Lawrence Power and Julien Quentin who gave the premiere in July 2012. The work was recently recorded by Barbara Buntrock and Huw Watkins for Charlotte’s second CD on the RTF Classical Label.

This year’s judges praised Charlotte’s work as being “beautifully crafted, wide-ranging in its scope and emotional intensity and engaging in its overall shape. It is a really gripping and virtuosic piece and a strong addition to the repertoire.”
