On Tuesday afternoon this week I made my Wigmore Hall debut with my piece ‘Three After-Dinner Pieces’ performed by Peter Moore and Richard Uttley. The concert was a great event and I will be lucky enough to share the video recording of the concert with you when it becomes available. The concert was well attended and it was a pleasure to be able to be a part of it.
Ahead of tomorrow’s premiere of ‘Three After-Dinner Pieces’ in Bristol, I spoke with Robert Hugill, and the resulting interview can be found here: http://www.planethugill.com/2017/09/electro-acoustic-music-trombones-cheese.html
It was lovely talking with Robert about the piece and I think the interview comes across very well!
Next Wednesday 27th September I have my new piece ‘Three After-Dinner Pieces’ premiering in Bristol in Colston Hall (1.05pm). Here is an article about the piece from BBC Music Mag, and above it a picture of Peter Moore (photo credit: Kaupo Kikkas). I am super excited about the piece and hope to be able to share it with you soon (tickets are available from: http://www.colstonhall.org/shows/petern-moore-richard-uttley).
This Saturday my new piece ‘Flutter’ will be performed at the Royal Festival Hall, London. The piece will be part of the concert performed by 350 children from 7 London primary schools. Tickets are free and can be booked on using the link below:
The concert starts at 17.00 and will be my first performance of a piece through the London Music Masters composition award for 2016/2107. I look forward to seeing you there! (photo credit copyright: Morley von Sternberg).
