News August 2017

The second CD for this year of my PhD is almost ready to go into production (Tall Poppies release). It will contain three symphonies, all premières: George Marshall-Hall Symphony in C minor, Peter Tahourdin Symphony No. 5 and David Morgan Symphony No. 13. This will probably be the first time such a recording has been made, not only because of the unique orchestra used, but also because none of the works has been heard before, with the exception of the Marshall-Hall middle movement. Release may not come until early next year, however.

I travel to the University of Adelaide later this month to deliver a mid-year paper; I shall play a few excerpts from my orchestral realizations.


Still waiting for ASCAP (U.S.performing rights) to confirm the agreement to part company with Southern Music...
