Last week saw the performance of Sally Beamish‘s Winter Trees and Brett Dean‘s Berlin Music given by Lucy Baker and myself as part of the BBC Philharmonic’s Red Brick Sessions. Two challenging yet highly rewarding pieces of music. A very special concert for me as it involved the discovery of two great composers and most importantly the first appearance with Lucy Baker, a great violinist and amazing musician. Hopefully many more concerts will follow.
Currently I am preparing for an in no way less challenging programme of solo and chamber works by Tom Armstrong, John McCabe and Deborah Pritchard for a concert together with trumpeter Simon Desbruslais at Surrey University on December 5th. More details to follow.
