Triptych, written to celebrate the marriage of Alexandra (violin) and Alex Caldon (trumpet), performing it here with Jonathan Galton (piano)
I am a London-based composer and pianist who specialises in writing songs, solo piano pieces and chamber music for piano and strings. My music is thoughtful and emotionally engaging and provides a stimulating journey for both performers and listeners. I am selling online sheet music for selected compositions and accepting new commissions of all kinds, including from performers, filmmakers and couples planning their weddings!
Recent musical projects have included a trio for the rather unusual combination of violin, trumpet and piano (see Triptych, above), a piano duet that channels the sound of birds singing above a flowing stream, and a setting of a prayer in the ancient Avestan language for an opera singer who is also a trained Zoroastrian priest. Hear more of my work on the "Sheet Music" and "Commissions" page and on soundcloud.
When not composing, I teach anthropology and conduct academic research and enjoy blogging about cities, sustainability and word etymology.
