Siccas Guitars have just released a video of my performance of Gary Carpenter's 'The Benefit of Hindsight'. The video was masterfully recorded and produced by Emmanuel Sowicz and recorded at Craxton Studios.
I am pleased to announce that I have recently been selected for the IGF Young Artist Platform. I will be playing at London Guitar Festival on October 23rd at King's Place and the programme will include a newly commissioned piece by Bethan Morgan-Williams entitled 'Strumble Head (Suite for Guitar)'.
Last week, Acervo Digital do Violão Brasileiro released the video of Marino-Arcaro's 'Pièce de Concert', which we recorded back in November 2019 in the Angela Burgess Recital Hall. The recording was engineered by Andrew Lang and produced by Rafael Marino-Arcaro.
Last month, I premiered Gary Carpenter's new work for solo guitar at the Royal Academy of Music's Bicentenary entitled 'The Benefit of Hindsight' for the event 'Pizzica'. The event was live-streamed from the Angela Burgess Recital Hall to 6 people and a camera!
The piece will be recorded and will be available on the Academy's site in the following months!
Recently I filmed a video with Alexandra Whittingham, where we recorded Leo Brouwer's arrangement of 'She's Leaving Home' by The Beatles. We've been rehearsing for a while now (pre-lockdown of course!), so it's great to share this fantastic little arrangement.
The Royal Academy of Music has published my recording of David Gorton's 'Lord Herbert's Pavan' as part of #RAMplaysON on can be found here.
I premiered the piece in February 2020 in the Angela Burgess Recital Hall as part of the Academy's '200 Pieces project' for their Bicentenary. The piece is based on works from the Cherbury Lute Book - most notably Daniel Bacheler's Lute Variations on the traditional French folk song La Jeune Fillette. The score is now available through Verlag Neue Musik, Berlin.
It was a pleasure to work with David and to see the piece come to life! I do hope you enjoy it.
