Have just heard that some of my Classical Masterclass arrangements for Alex James are going to be played at The Big Feastival this weekend!

The event is run by Alex and Jamie Oliver and mixes great music with great food and takes place on Alex's farm at Kingham in The Cotswolds.  

My pieces are going to be played by Alex on Sunday around 12:30 so if you're there keep a listen out!

And if you haven't already seen it CLICK HERE to see great behind the scenes footage from the strings recording session earlier in the year.  The video is the strings section recording my new arrangement of Praeludium from Grieg's Holberg Suite - amazing!  Alex James is in the foreground (back to camera) and we were recording in his barn.

I'm now in the final throes of writing my concerto for top clarinetist Emma Johnson.  I've been working on the three movements on and off through the year and I'm now just finishing off the last movement which is going to be a triumphant and majestic ending to the work!

Emma will be recording the new work later this year - more details to follow.
