Great news! At long last, after a 33 year wait, my first ever little orchestral piece, Ballade For An Entablature (written when I was 19), has finally had its world premiere! Huge thanks to the All Women’s Orchestra of Norwich, UK, and conductor Sarah Chadwick for including it in their wonderful concert to raise funds for Cancer Research and giving it such a fabulous and beautiful performance, which I’m very proud to add to my website. Please see the work’s page to hear it. Also big thanks to Ann Smith, the concert organizer, for all her wonderful support and communications over the two years it took to reschedule the concert three times due to the Covid-19 pandemic! It was all well worth the long wait. Fabulous event on all levels!

I am pleased to tell you that in the year 2020 I managed to write two more works: the Six Studies For Various Solo Clarinets and The Glastry Pearl, a tone poem for symphony orchestra. The Six Studies were immediately published by  Alea Publishing and Recording and can be found here

The Glastry Pearl, an elegy in memory of my Mum who died on March 24th 2020, one day into our first UK Lockdown of the Covid-19 Pandemic, is 30 minutes long and an exciting challenge  for any symphony orchestra out there looking for some post-pandemic excitement. The work, understandably so, is very heavily influenced by the pandemic as well as the powerful and wonderful personality of my fabulous mother! I promise you, it won’t be a disappointment to any orchestra willing to take it on.

Now entered into the computer an early, short, full orchestral piece called Ballade For An Entablature. It can be found under “Music”, “Orchestral Works”. Soon, I will add a computer playback recording to give you an idea of what it will sound like. But, as we all know, a real orchestra is the ONLY way to hear it in its true glory!

New piece just completed this month!

Capriccio for flute, violin and piano.

Was a joy to write. Mad, crazy and wild! Yeah!!!!! Please see its page under Chamber Music. Updates will be posted in due course. Thank you.


Just recently completed a new work, Divertimento, for flute choir.

It has 3 short movements and its total duration is about 15 minutes.

It is scored for flutes 1 – 4, with flutes 1 -3 doubling on piccolos here and there, alto flute, bass flute and a string double bass to add extra wellie!

The outer 2 movements are light, speedy and funny, while the middle movement is more of a sombre, slightly haunting nature.

I will post more information on this at a later date.

Thank you for visiting.
