SOME NOTABLE CLUSTERS Online Premiere
I have been lucky enough to compose a large piece for solo viola player Daniel James Hudson - Some Notable Clusters for solo viola, orchestra & electroacoustics. As part of a vast composition called Ecliptic Observations, this is a series of nine sections, each of which evokes nebulae, star clusters, black holes and even supervoids located in constellations in the 14-constellation Ecliptic (through which the Sun passes during the course of a year.)
We went for an online premiere on January 1st, 2021 - a link to the Vimeo showcase and an interview with the composer :
The vast canvas that is Ayutthaya was succesfully premiered by the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus on 23rd & 24th March 2017 in the magnificent Prince Mahidol Concert Hall of Mahidol University. It was brilliantly conducted by Maestro Zhang Gouyong of the Beijing Opera.
