A brilliant weekend of press coverage for my super clients - a front cover feature in the autumn 2015 edition of Early Music Today for The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments and two features inside for Brecon Baroque Festival and Brighton Early Music Festival; BBC Radio 4's Front Row for Alamire and a lovely Telegraph Review feature from Ivan Hewett.  All in a week's work.


Just a little bit excited about this - a live stream  of I Fagiolini's Betrayal with The Guardian on Friday night (15 May).

New client on the block - Brighton Early Music Festival 2015 - whoo hoo!

I am thrilled to be working with I Fagiolini in 2015 for the group's new project - a polyphonic crime drama called Betrayal.

I'm launched The Spy's Choirbook (Obsidian Records) in September 2014.  There were features and news stories in The Daily Telegraph,  BBC Radio 4's The World at One and Midweek, BBC Radio 3's Breakfast, The Choir and In Tune. In October, it was named Amazon's No 1 Bestseller. In December it was named The Times' Classical Recording of the Year and in January 2015, it's Editor's Choice in Gramophone Magazine - the power of good music and, dare I say it, good PR.

The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments' next project, Nine Daies Wonder, explores an outrageous Elizabethan publicity stunt carried out by actor, dancer and clown, Will Kemp, in the year 1600. The Society presents extraordinary instruments, plaintive songs, exuberant dancing, elegant instrumental music, outrageous ballads, wild country dances and a filthy jig in the spirit of Will Kemp's epic journey. Touring 2014/15. I'm very excited to be working on this.

  I am delighted to have taken on Mid Wales Opera for its 25th Anniversary Year.  The company will be staging two major productions in 2014 - Handel's Acis & Galatea with Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque and Carmen, directed by Dr Jonathan Miller.
