I'm delighted to be singing with Klangforum Wien again this year: I join them for a programme of Vivier and Kyriakides in Vienna in
January, for Jennifer Walshe's XXX_LIVE_NUDE_GIRLS!!! in Grenoble in March, and for a revival of Rebecca Saunders's Skin in Paris in June. Skin also takes me to Amsterdam in May, this time to perform it with Asko|Schönberg and Bas Wiegers, and there's more Saunders on the menu for Louth Contemporary
Music Society in June, where I'll be singing O and O, yes and I. Behind the scenes, I'm working with Cassandra Miller and Lisa Illean on new pieces to be unveiled later this
I also have a delicious glut of early music performances in London. I'll be singing Couperin's extraordinary Trois Leçons de Ténèbres with soprano Amy Wood, Bach's St John Passion with the Merbecke Choir in Southwark Cathedral and a sequence
of Bach arias for soprano and oboe with Rachel Chaplin. I'm also performing and recording some Bach Cantatas in Switzerland with the marvellous musicians of Gli Angeli Genève.
With EXAUDI I'll be performing in Principal Sound Festival, the BBC's Open Ear series, Beverley Early Music Festival, Time of Music Festival in Viitasaari, Finland,
and the Voix Nouvelles Academy at Royaumont Abbey.
My recording of Three Voices
continues to attract some ink: it was recently featured as one of the 100 best albums of 2017, according to The
Times, and was one of Kate Molleson's 20 best classical releases of 2017! You can still buy a copy here
or catch a live performance
in the Principal Sound Festival at St John's Smith Square in February.
My recording with the wonderful, indefatigable Mark Knoop of Bernhard
Lang's The Cold Trip, part 2
was released on Kairos in August and has apparently sold out (a re-run is imminent). The world premiere of Rebecca Saunders's Skin
also included in the Donaueschinger Musiktage 2016 round-up released on NEOS. A portrait disc of Andrew Hamilton comes out on NMC in June and includes To The People
Echardour), there's a special recording of Milton Babbitt's Philomel
on its way, and some Finnissy has just hit the wax...
In other news, I am currently Chapel Artist-in-Residence at Oxford House in Bethnal Green. As part of my residency, I am running a series and a symposium
dedicated to new music and held in the little wooden chapel up in the eaves of Oxford House. Read more about eavesdropping here.
