Music in Twelve Parts @ Barbican

08/05/2017

A week ago a group of 10 musicians including me on voice performed Philip Glass's mammoth 4-hour long Music in Twelve Parts in front of a full Barbican Hall. It was the first time the piece was performed by a group other than the Philip Glass Ensemble - an incredible experience which I'm not ready to forget, and we will hopefully be doing it again!

Modern Muses on BBC Radio 3 

16/04/2017

Some weeks ago my violinist friend Fiona Monbet and I were interviewed by the BBC, she in Paris and me in London, to talk about our collaboration over the years as part of Modern Muses on Radio 3's programme Hear and Now. Among other things we discuss my pieces DUO, if nomen boat, lignéchos and our opera project Les Constellations - Une Théorie

The resulting feature was broadcast last night and you can listen again at this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04zvkpp
