South Bank Sky Arts Award Nomination

I’ve been nominated for a South Bank Sky Arts Award for Spirit of the Staircase, premiered by Martyn Brabbins and the London Sinfonietta last year. The other nominees for the classical music category are the Philharmonia and Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Stravinsky series ‘Myths and Rituals’, and the Dunedin Consort‘s performance of the Monteverdi Vespers at the Lammermuir Festival – what a treat to be nominated alongside such phenomenal music making…

There’s all sorts of other nominations for different art forms – my personal favourites are Fleabag (Comedy), Happy Valley (TV), I Daniel Blake (Film), Philip Venables’ 4.48 Psychosis (Opera) and David Bowie’s Blackstar (Pop music). Read the full list of nominations here.

The award ceremony is on the 9th July and will be broadcast on Sky Arts on the 12th (two days before my St John’s Dance opens the BBC Proms).
