I am chuffed to announce that my second orchestral work, A Sovereign Hawk, has been shortlisted for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales' 'Composition: Wales' initiative.
The project will see the orchestra workshop my piece over three separate sessions in the new year. Seven works have been selected in total, including pieces by former course mates and collaborators Carol Jones and David John Roche. The project will conclude with a concert in which selected works will be given a concert performance by the orchestra at their home in the BBC Hoddinott Hall (Wales Millennium Centre).
Mine is a piece which is intended to be equally rewarding, and technically achievable by both amateur and professional ensembles alike. I am incredibly excited to hear what the BBC NOW make of my work.
