Concert Pieces

A SELECTION OF RECORDINGS AND CLIPS OF WORKS I'VE WRITTEN

YEREVAN FOR GUITAR DUO // 2016

Recently I was asked to participate in a festival in Yerevan, Armenia. As well as helping with the organisation of the festival I had a piece commissioned and performed.

 

This is a recording of the piece, performed by Joao Lima (Portugal) and Lilit Maridyan (Armenia).

The piece was inspired by the artwork of Armenian artist Nana Aramyan.

DAI VILLAGE // 2017

This year I began a collaboration with flautist Lin Lin of China. She commissioned me to write a piece for flute and piano, combining the tradititions and musical philosophies of Eastern and Western music. Here is a performance of the work.

TEREZA ON PETRIN HILL // 2016

I began writing this piece whilst on holiday in São Paulo, and the initial idea for one of the themes came to me whilst reading Milan Kundera's 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' on the plane. As a result of this, I decided to dedicate the piece to the specific point in the book that I was reading, a tense and dramatic dream that Tereza (one of the book's main characters) has whilst living in Prague.

I won't go into too much detail about the book, but I highly recommend reading it!

This piece is written for a string orchestra and violin solo, and am aiming to have it performed this year or early 2017 by an orchestra here in London that I am in contact with.

I hope you enjoy it!

The piece is performed with noteperformer software created by Wallander Instruments (www.noteperformer.com)

Stills taken from the Warner Bros movie adaptation of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Directed by Philip Kaufman in 1988. Starring Juliette Binoche as Tereza.

 

ELEGY FOR STRINGS // NOV 2013

I recently recorded a new piece for string Orchestra at the Royal Academy

THE SECRECT WAR IN ANTARCTICA // JAN 2013

 

My latest piece for orchestra written during the Christmas period of 2012 to early january 2013. I was inspired by the idea that there may be untold wars and secrets in the distant regions of the Antartic. This music depicts a fictional battle which may or may already have taken place sometime in the recent past, somewhere in the remote Antarctic landscape.

Two of my compositions premiered at the LAPS Concert, Royal Academy of Music 2011

MUSIC FOR A SCENE OF CHARLIE CHAPLIN // 2011

 

Music written in 2011 as part of my undergraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music
