I was in Ashford this week working with the Kent County Youth Orchestra on my new piece for them Loop Concerto. It was great being with the orchestra for the week (just like old times) and excellent to work with the fantastic Ivo Neame on the piece. The work is for improvised piano and has relied on Ivo getting inside the piece. I’m really looking forward to the performance in Maidstone next week!
