I’m delighted to announce a new commission for solo piano from Matthew Kaner. We’ve been talking about this new piece for months and have now got all the funding together, so I’m very excited that Matt can start work on it. His music is colourful, intricate and rich; as such his first big piano piece promises to be very interesting indeed. I will give the premiere at St John’s Smith Square in London on 7 May 2015.
The work has been generously funded by the Arthur Bliss Trust, the Britten-Pears Foundation and the RVW Trust.
UPDATE: Full details and programme note here, and I subsequently recorded the work for BBC Radio 3 – excerpt here:
