Aldeburgh Residency

From today, I am starting a residency hosted by the Britten-Pears Foundation at the former home of Imogen Holst (pictured here with Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears) in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. I will be staying in the property, located at Church Walk in the centre of Aldeburgh, for five weeks and will work on two upcoming pieces for 2016 – my new work for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and a concerto for piano and ensemble (more details of which later).

The end of my stay will overlap with the beginning of the Aldeburgh Festival, where soprano Claire Booth and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will premiere my new orchestral song cycle Beautiful Caged Thing on 13 June, conducted by George Benjamin.

I am grateful to the Britten-Pears Foundation and Aldeburgh Music for their support of this residency.
