The video for the first released track from my upcoming album VOICES is now live.
This project has been 10 years in the making. In this time of great challenges, VOICES is a place to reflect on the world we have made, and on the world we want to make.
Readings are from the United Nations Declaration Of Human Rights. Video by Yulia Mahr.

Max Richter’s ‘Journey (CP1919)’ – commissioned especially for the Aurora Orchestra’s project and album ‘Music of the Spheres’ is inspired by the discovery of the first pulsar star, CP1919. Richter’s ‘Journey’, uses rhythms governed by the same ratios used by ancient astronomers to describe the orbits of the planets and – inspired by Aurora’s “by heart” projects – Richter created it to be performed by players from memory. ‘Journey (CP1919)’ Listen HERE from Deutsche Grammophon.
The American-Italian drama My Brilliant Friend returns to HBO with the long-awaited second season –The Story of a New Name, based on the second book of Elena Ferrante’s bestselling book series, The Neapolitan Novels.

Now that more and more of us are required to isolate at home, many people are finding they have time to play the piano, so I’m going to be making some of my sheet music available for free download HERE. The first piece is A Catalogue of Afternoons, and will be available for the next two weeks.
Feel free to post and tag any videos of your playing, and please stay safe!
