At heart I'm a Celt. That says it all. Whether it's a simple song or a full-scale concerto, music is the language of my soul. I'm not afraid to write music that is beautiful, appealing directly to people's emotions.
Three videos that showcase some of my more recent work. This is only a snapshot, though, go to Just Listen for the full works! My thanks to Anastasia Lin for inspiring the piano concerto and to the photographers who reported on the 2015 Nepal earthquakes that inspired 'A Himalaya Concerto'.
Published in 2014 and probably the most beautiful a piece of music I'll ever write.
The opening of my latest project (a work in progress) and the second of my full-scale concertos.
The third movement of my 2015 concerto for clarinet, cimbalom and orchestra, with it's delightfully off-kilter 5/4 and 5/8 time signatures.
