Forthcoming highlights in new music include the London premieres with pianist Mark Knoop of two song cycles I commissioned last year: Michael Finnissy's Andersen-Liederkreis at City University on 11 April, and Bernhard Lang's The Cold Trip, part 2 at Cafe Oto on 18 May. On Easter day I jet off to the USA for a 3-week tour of solo performances, workshops and seminars in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Chicago and Buffalo. Tracery, an evolving modular piece I am working on with the wonderful Cassandra Miller, is gathering momentum, and I'll be unveiling new portions in the coming months as part of a new programme called 'A certain kind of light'. At the end of the summer, I return to Royaumont Abbey as coach and performer for 'Voix Nouvelles'.
 
In early music, I am joining forces with musicologist Anna Beer and lutenist Jamie Akers for a series of lecture recitals introducing the life and work of Francesca Caccini, composer to the Medici, who published Il primo libro delle musiche nearly 400 years ago. I'm also thrilled to be spending a (hopefully balmy) night Singing With Nightingales on 14 April, the inspirational initiative of folk musician Sam Lee.
 
With EXAUDI, I travel to Paris to perform a tenebrous programme of Alberto Posadas and Vitoria, and to the Aldeburgh Festival for an exploration of 'Chromatic Renaissance'. We'll also be singing Laurence Crane's Pieces About Art as part of the PRS for Music Foundations Biennial for New Music in Hull and London. It's not too late to share in our 15th anniversary celebrations — our concert at the Wigmore Hall was recorded by the BBC for broadcast on 'Hear and Now' and 'The Early Music Show'. 
 
I'm also pleased to announce that I have several recordings due to come out this year: watch this space for release details of Bernhard Lang's The Cold Trip, part 2 (in May, on Kairos), a new disc of the wonderful music of Frank Denyer, and a special recording of Milton Babbitt's Philomel
