New commission for Heloise Werner

I am very excited to announce that I have been commissioned to write a new piece for soprano Heloise Werner and pianist Natalie Burch which will tour around the UK in late 2019/early 2020. The piece will sit alongside Britten’s Les Illuminations as well as a new piece by Heloise. I have worked with Heloise many times over the past few years both with The Hermes Experiment and as a solo artist, including the solo opera Scenes from the End in 2016, and it’s an absolute thrill to be able to do so again and explore a more theatrical approach to song. Full details of where you can hear the piece will be posted on this site closer to the time. We are very grateful for the generous support of the Hinrischen Foundation for this project.
