News December 2018

The Dracula cast is now a full book, with Jud Arthur taking on the title role. Recording will probably be mid-February.

The Three Poems by Gwen Harwood will now be recorded in March with Lorina Gore. Release of the double CD (Dracula, Three Poems and my folksong suite for string orchestra, String Songs) will hopefully be no later than April.


Meanwhile I have started practising in order to record the solo piano part of Andrew Ford's concerto Imaginings later this month. This will go on the "Concerto Premières" CD with the two percussion concertos by Morgan and Bryce, and Robert Constable's Medea. Release of that CD may be next September, with the launch being in Adelaide.
