In the absence of concerts - apologies that most of the news is about recordings.
All engagements have been cancelled into next year. A few are being rescheduled .. including my HCMF commission for a 15 -piece group - postponed until Nov 2021.

THE TURN THINGS TAKE

I've been reluctant to get involved in online performances but was intrigued when invited to contribute a piece of music plus video to this series curated by West Den Haag.
