Very much looking forward to interacting with students of London Music Masters tomorrow in a Facebook live session about notation. They commissioned the Three After-Dinner pieces for Peter Moore a couple of years ago (available up on the left in my music player if you want to listen). Here’s the link https://www.facebook.com/londonmusicmasters and I’ll be live at 3pm. You need pens, paper, a fruit or vegetable, and your imagination. Earlier sessions at 11am with Beth Higham-Edwards and 1pm with Tom Coult and Sarah Hill should be great to tune into as well. And it doesn’t stop there, as Preetha Narayanan is following me at 5pm. See you there!
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).
I am delighted to have been chosen as one of London Music Masters Composition Award holders for 2016-2017. Full details can be found here: http://www.londonmusicmasters.org/news-and-events/news-archive/london-music-masters-announces-new-award-holders/
Violinist Marc Bouchkov, composer Shiva Feshareki, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and myself will be looking forward to working with LMM and their upcoming projects over the next academic year. I have already been in discussion with their team about commissions for the forthcoming year and want to wish everyone a big congratulations! I’ll post further information about the project as it develops.
