Good times in San Diego

Posted on Friday, May 24, 2013

While the Firework Maker's Daughter continues joyfully on it's UK tour (the final week of dates takes in Buxton, Oxford and Newcastle next week), I've been busy over in San Diego premiering the first of my three pieces for the San Diego Symphony as part of my Associate Composer position with them over the next two years. The new piece Cymbeline was premiered triumphantly by my dear friend Avi Avital and players from the orchestra, and you can hear the results by following this link.

The other good news to emerge is that I can now officially come clean and announce that the wonderful Gil Shaham will be the soloist in the violin concerto I'm writing as the third piece for the Symphony next year, which is frankly about as exciting news as a composer could hope to share! Meanwhile work continues full steam on the new orchestral piece Night Parade which will premiere with the orchestra in San Diego on 4th, 5th and 6th October, before joining the orchestra on their first ever performance at Carnegie Hall on 29th Oct, and in Beijing on the final concert of their first ever tour.
