Matthew Schellhorn will be giving the premiere of a short piano piece I wrote for him last summer, fleeting… in Bangor on 14 February. It will be played as part of a wonderful programme including music by Messiaen, Dutilleux, Ravel, and Colin Riley in the Powis Hall, Bangor University.
Matthew is currently planning to record fleeting… along with The Will of the Tones, which was also written for him, and a selection of my other solo piano and chamber music, on a CD to be released next year.

My book on French composer Henri Dutilleux is now out: it’s published in French by Millénaire III, translated by Frédérique Aït-Touati and was launched at an international conference on Dutilleux in Paris on 7 December, attended by the composer himself. The book is available from bookshops in France, or can be ordered. (For further information, click here; if you have any trouble finding it, please send a message to this site via the ‘comments’ page.)
