I have always had a love for the violin and my dream as a youth was to become a concert violinist. My life has taken a different direction, but now I am eager to foster young violinists’ talents by sponsoring an International Violin Competition.
I thoroughly enjoyed my last collaboration with the Doric String Quartet and am looking forward hugely to this one. Despite their youth, they have experience and maturity aplenty, allied with intelligence, subtlety and a powerful urge to communicate.
I am very much looking forward to creating a new work for the remarkable Song Company. Their daring approach to repertoire is a fabulous challenge and stimulus to all composers who have the privilege of working with them! I can’t wait!
