I'm busy writing concertos at the moment.  If you take a look at the recently-announced 2016-17 seasons from the SCO and the RSNO you'll see why.  It's a special pleasure to be writing for two dear friends I have known for many years: Tom Poster (piano, with the SCO) and Katherine Bryan (flute, with the RSNO). 

Also announced this week: a second run of performances of Visiones, premiered at last year's Aldeburgh Festival.  The fantastic young ensemble Dark Inventions are presenting the piece as part of their 'From Score to Sound' project on 9th, 17th and 24th April in York, Leeds and London.
