In the works

Posted on Wednesday, January 23, 2013

It's the new year, so time for a few New Year Announcements.

San Diego Symphony Associate Composer

I'm thrilled to have been appointed Associate Composer to the San Diego Symphony for the 2013/14 season. I'll be writing three pieces for them, including a new work for the orchetra's Carneige Hall debut in October '13, and a new violin concerto for autumn 2014 (with an amazing soloist, details of which are strictly shtum at this time unfortunately).

To kick off the association I'm delighted to be writing a chamber piece for my old partner-in-crime, mandonlist Avi Avital and we'll be premiering the new work in May this year (details here). You can read an interview Avi gave to San Diego Jewish Journal talking about our collaboration here [PDF]

New Carnegie Hall commission

Fresh from her title role in John Adam's The Gospel According to the Other Mary, the wonderful mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor will premiere a new work I'm writing for her as part of a US tour with soprano Jessica Rivera in October '13. The new work, provisionally titled 'That Time with You', is a further collaboration with Glyn Maxwell, though here in rather darker and more sombre mode, with poignant lyrics reflecting on death and loss. I'm deeply honoured and thankful to Carnegie Hall for co-commissioning this work with Kelley herself, and for their continued generosity and support of my career.
