Welcome

Hello and welcome to my new website – I hope you enjoy browsing around!   Please visit often – I will regularly be adding more sounds and videos, and information about my new projects and recordings.

First off is my long awaited return to the studio with Red Priest later this month to record ‘Handel in the Wind’ – our first CD recording for nearly five years! This programme features some of Georg Frederick’s greatest tunes, including a half-hour suite from the Messiah; listen out especially for ‘The Recorder Shall Sound’!  The disc will be available later in the year.   Following this, David and I will commit to disc our ‘Wild Men of the Seicento’ project, which we have been performing for the past few months (next stop the Isle of Man on June 24th) – truly wonderful music from the ‘forgotten years’ of the mid-17th century.  In between these and my regular concert schedule I will be flying to Berlin and Hamburg to present two more shows for BBC Radio 3.

Exciting times generally for the recorder – for the second year running a recorder player has won the wind section of BBC Young Musician of the Year; I was a jury member at the Concerto Final last time around and saw first hand the glamour and excitement of the event; with this, and innovations such as the Eagle Recorder, maybe the tide really is turning for our instrument…

    What is your itinerary for your U. S. tour in November? Hopefully, you’ll be in Florida.
