The Animato Kwartet have given numerous performances of my String Quartet No. 1 “Katabasis” in Holland, after premiering the work this summer at the NJO Muzikzomer festival. Most recently they performed it during the finals of the Storioni Toonzaal chamber music contest.

Back in the UK after six weeks at the MacDowell Colony, New Hampshire, USA, where I worked on a number of new pieces – mainly a groovy string quartet.

Sinful Sinfonies, along with new works by Sergio Cote, Paulina Zalubska, and Peter Longworth, was premiered on 10th June by members of the LPO and the Foyle Future Firsts. Read the review from Classical Source here
