New commission for 2018 BBC Proms

Posted on Saturday, April 28, 2018

I'm delighted to have fulfilled a life-long ambition to have a piece performed at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall. As I mentioned in my YouTube video How to get to Carnegie Hall (or your own personal equivalent), when I was 15, my mum even offered to buy me a grand piano if I ever achieved this goal.

The Prom is on 15th July, Prom 3, and it's a wonderful concert, celebrating 40 years of the BBC Young Musician of the Year, featuring many of the previous winners and finalists. I've been asked to write for four of them, oboist Nicholas Daniel, with whom I've worked many times before of course; violinist Jennifer Pike, French Horn player Ben Goldscheider who was a finalist last year, and clarinettist Michael Collins. The piece will also feature the full BBC Concert Orchestra.

The title Sidechaining refers to a process found in digital audio software, I will post more about that soon.
