This month, my new setting of Edward Lear’s ‘The Dong with a Luminous Nose’ for voice and solo clarinet will be recorded for a forthcoming CD of my music which includes clarinet. Other pieces will include my Clarinet Concerto, Clarinet Sonata, and several chamber works. The Clarinettist for all the pieces is Steve Dummer and for this first recording the voice is Aidan Smith.

On 5th April my ‘Stranger, Lover, Dancer’ for solo ‘cello will get another performance – in the past it has featured at both the Presteigne and Cheltenham festivals – this time the performance will be in Brighton with ‘cellist Ivana Peranic.
