Home News Current Projects (2016)

It's February 2016, and these are the current composing projects I have in my inbox:

Pool of Blood - an opera with libretto by Nia Williams. This collaboration has been ongoing for some time, interrupted by several other projects for both Nia and me! We are going to revisit it soon with a view to finishing it by the end of this year.

A Tenor Saxophone work for Lorna Edwards. This work has been changing shape in my mind for some time, but I intend to start serious writing on it before Easter.

HARE & TORTOISE! Having done the musical a few years back, I am working on a Contemporary Dance version for Lunas Dance, for performance in the Autumn of 2016.

Woodwind Quintet No 2, for a local quintet I play in, who play primarily Elgar's quintets using the unusual arrangement of 2 flutes, oboe, clarinet and bassoon

Trio for Basset Horns, a modern-day work based on the format of Mozart's "Divertimenti", and written specifically for classical period basset horns

A short saxophone work for Sarah Lorraine

A harp work for Lorna Stephen

Resident Bones! A musical...
