Gêmdis out now

Gêmdis (2020), for solo E-flat clarinet and ensemble, has been released by Carl Rosman & Ensemble Musikfabrik (cond. Christian Eggen). The title ‘Gêmdis’ combines the Welsh words for ‘game’ and ‘dice’, and like a desperate gambler, the music keeps returning for another roll of the dice.

Three releases: coming soon

Gêmdis, for solo E-flat clarinet and ensemble, was recorded by Martin Pilger & Ensemble Musikfabrik in November, and is expected to be released shortly. Meanwhile, a solo version of the same piece and a violin and piano piece from last year – Datod – have been recorded live to video tape and are due to be released as part of the ensemble's Lockdown Tapes series very soon.

Datod at Concertini 10

Datod, for violin and piano, received its premiere in Cologne yesterday. Performers Hannah Weirich and Ulrich Löffler absolutely blew me away with two(!) fabulous performances. A recording of the second performance, which was especially moving, can be accessed via this post.

A Composer in Lockdown

What strange times we find ourselves in! There were meant to be two premieres of mine in May, one of which has been postponed and the other sadly cancelled. There is still plenty to look forward to though...
