Best Small Chamber Composition @ Ivors Classical Awards


I'm incredibly happy to have been awarded the Ivor Novello Award for Best Small Chamber Composition at the Ivors Classical Awards last night, for my piece Comme l'espoir/you might all disappear.

This short piece for voice and guitar was commissioned by Héloïse Werner with support from PRS Foundation back in 2021, and performed beautifully by Héloïse and Laura Snowden on Héloïse's first solo album 'Phrases'.

Ivors Composer Awards nomination


Delighted that my piece Comme l'espoir/you might all disappear for voice and guitar, written for Héloise Werner & Laura Snowden, is nominated for an Ivor Novello Award this year in the 'Small Chamber' category.

Three Lunar Seas reviews


"Écrite d’un seul trait, dans un mouvement continu qui emporte l’auditeur et le tient en haleine une heure trente durant, cette pièce orchestrée avec finesse [...] apporte la preuve que la forme lyrique a toujours sa place dans la cité." 
Concert Classic

"(Une) création attachante et envoûtante" 
Opera Online

"[...] les éclaircies lumineuses de la partition, s'élevant par de grandes phrases lyriques vers de vastes espaces sonores."
