Coronavirus meant that nearly all live concert engagements had to be cancelled over the last year. However, I consider myself fortunate to have been able to perform in a small number of livestreamed performances throughout lockdown. Among the organisations to invite me to perform in this way were the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Chamber Music Scotland, and the Seattle Chamber Music Society. I was also delighted to be a guest on BBC Radio 3’s “In Tune” and appeared on “Classics Unwrapped” on BBC Radio Scotland during this time.
Whilst coronavirus still renders the diary somewhat sparse, there are projects ahead that I look forward to with great anticipation.
The coming year will welcome engagements with the marvellous pianist, Danny Driver.
Together, he and I will explore the pearls of the British clarinet and piano repertoire, and more. I am very much looking forward to this exciting collaboration.
Furthermore, there are concerts planned with my trio, Metamorphoses, throughout the UK and Netherlands.
Our concerts had been abruptly curtailed midway through a Spanish tour back in March 2020, so naturally we are all looking forward to a reunion as soon as possible.
Check back here for updates. Concert schedules may change on short notice.
