The piece Elementos (2018), for piano trio, is set to be performed by ensemble recherche in Freiburg on the 7th of September 2020 during the Ensemble-Akademie. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the organisation hopes the Akademie can still take place:
Even though the present situation creates planning uncertainty, we currently assume that we will be able to hold the Academy Week in September.

Back in 2006, I wrote a solo clarinet piece for Ruben Jacinto, who was studying at the same music school as me. In December 2019 we gathered at Montijo to record it. Editing is now almost finished and the score is being revised.
On the 18th of January 2019, pianist Phillip Leslie will give the world premiere of my new piano piece, called NowState, commissioned by the Park Lane Group Music Trust. The concert is part of the SoundState festival, to take place at the Southbank Centre, London, on 16-20 January 2019. The festival aims at “bringing together an unrivalled concentration of global creativity and celebrates the artists that are redefining what it means to make new music in the 21st century”. The event will take place at the Purcell Room, at 6:45pm, featuring also performances by the Laefer Saxophone Quartet. Click here to book your free ticket.
