Guitar Sonata premiere

Today is the first of a number of premieres that are happening this month. The Sonata for two guitars was finished over a year ago but has had to wait for its first performance, now that concerts are happening again. It’s something of an epic piece, in three movements, and could never have been completed […]

Performances in China

It’s super to see some older pieces continuing to get played, and in this case it’s some tangos written almost 20 years ago! These three pieces – Alba, Eurydice Sings, and Pájaros del Mar – are getting their Chinese premieres at Steinway Hall in Changsha next Tuesday. These are part of a concert of tango […]

Hélène Diot

Much thanks to Hélène Diot for continuing to play my music, and for today’s performances of Admiring Yoro Waterfall and Ay! at the Festival Ars Terra in France. These are two very different pieces, but they fit nicely into the programme theme of ‘Nature and Passions’ (Yoro being ‘nature’, and Ay! ‘passion). Merci Helene!

Good news, in the wilderness…

It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was often getting 100+ performances each year, and now that’s totally changed. Hopefully there will be a gradual return to some sort of ‘normality’ (and I have a fair number of commissioned pieces waiting for performance, so things will get much busier once concerts start again) but […]
