VIOLINIST | VIOLIST | MUSICOLOGIST

WRITING

I write my own programme notes for most of my recitals and have also been regularly commissioned to provide such notes for many orchestral concerts.  I have, therefore, an extensive library of programme notes, which range in length from approximately 250 to 2000 words.  My work also appears in the CD booklets of my recordings for EM Records.

 

During my musicological research, I have authored papers and articles for the Arthur Bliss Society, the British Music Society, the English Music Festival, and G. Henle Verlag of Munich. A paper for the scholarly publication edition text + kritik, also of Munich, is currently in preparation.

 

 

PROGRAMME NOTES

A full index of my library of programme notes, in both HTML and PDF format, will shortly be available.
