Prog Notes

‘excellent programme notes’ – John Allison, The Daily Telegraph (4 October 2015) 


Among the organisations for which I have written programme notes are the Almeida Festival, Aspen Festival, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC PO, BBC Proms, BBC SO, Chicago SO, City of Birmingham SO, Edinburgh Festival, Haifa SO, Holland Festival, Huddersfield Festival, ISCM/Gaudeamus Festival, London PO, London SO, Los Angeles PO, Polish Radio Choir, Polish Radio National SO, Porto SO, Sydney SO, Ulster Orchestra, Vale of Glamorgan Festival, ‘Warsaw Autumn’ Festival, Wigmore Hall and ‘Wratislavia Cantans’.  All the Polish programme notes have been moved to my other site,  Links to programme notes that include non-Polish music will remain here.

As with the CD NOTES, these programme notes are offered as a resource to anyone interested in the music. Repertoire is listed by composer and then chronologically.  If you wish to quote from any of the notes, please acknowledge the author and either the url or the record label + catalogue number.

If you are interested in commissioning programme notes, please get in touch via the CONTACT tab above.
