Artists and Organizations

Some of my recent work includes programme notes for performances by the following artists, under the auspices of London Handel Festival, Concerts in the West, City of London Sinfonia, Spitalfields Music, St Martin-in-the-Fields and the Jacqueline du Pre Music Building.

My most recent commission has been for a Chamber Music New Zealand Regional Tour by Catherine Mackintosh and Douglas Mews, and for a recital of ballades by Brahms, Chopin and Liszt by Bernard D’Ascoli at the Jacqueline du Pre Music Building.
