It has been a long time since I've written here so I'm happy to break the silence with this announcement! There have been a lot of huge events in my life during the last several weeks and this is one of them :-)
Amati Magazine of London has just released news about the new Concerto for Cello and Chamber Orchestra titled "of radiances blossoming in expanding air" being written for me by award-winning American composer Jeffrey Mumford. I'll be giving the World Premiere with the English Symphony Orchestra and principal conductor Kenneth Woods in London during the 2017-18 season followed by the U.S. Premiere with Phoenix, the Boston-based ensemble directed by Matthew Szymanski. I'm so excited to be working with Jeffrey, Kenneth, Matt, and their respective ensembles. They are real 'movers and shakers' in the music world and I'm thrilled we will be creating a real synergy.
I want to extend a HUGE thank you to Jessica Duchen of Amati Magazine for being so supportive of this project and highlighting it on her front page next to some incredible artists!

I will, of course, try and update you when we welcome new partners in our consortium (which, by the way, if you or someone you know is interested in getting involved in this project or you just want to share the excitement, please don't hesitate to write!
