News from the Pest

I’m just back from a master course with the inspirational composer-conductor Peter Eötvös. I spent a week at the Budapest Music Centre where I had the chance to meet composers Matthias Pintscher, Philippe Manoury and György Kurtág alongside a steady stream of contemporary repertoire workshops. The Hungarian Music Information Centre was also onsite: I was in my element amongst the scores of the fantastic Eötvös operas! Many thanks to the Eötvös Music Foundation for their kind support.

I recently had the excellent fortune to assist conductor Otto Tausk on the Swiss premiere of George Benjamin’s opera Written on Skin. Directed by Nicola Raab, the production has its fifth and final airing this weekend in St Gallen. It was an honour to be involved in this beautiful project and to be part of such an intuitive creative team.
