cartoonishly fun” (BBC Radio 3), “deliciously playful” (Classical Music Magazine) and

internationally by ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC

Symphony Orchestra, China National Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, St

He is a regular collaborator with the contemporary dance group, Cohan Collective, and has worked closely with New York-based choreographer

Jacqueline Bulnes.

Many of his solo and chamber works
