May 2013 - Final concert for the LCO project went well. Look out for the recording on the site soon. We had a few 'technical glitches' with the piano but all in all it was a great experience. Also, have a look at the video of Song Fragments from Belgrade. Just about to start revising my Worker's Union piece for October.
April 2013 - The LCO workshop was a success! Fantastic players and ensemble, a few revision to do on the piece before the concert at Cadogan Hall in May.
March 2013 - LCO piece is finished!! The work ended up having an additional instrument (a viola) and has the title Till Human Voices Wake Us (from T.S. Eliot). A tricky piece to compose but rewarding - looking forward to the workshop in April (see event listings) before the final concert at Cadogan Hall in May...
February 2013 - Andrew has been selected to compose a new work for the London Chamber Orchestra to be performed at Cadogan Hall in May. The work will be for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and magnetic-resonator piano (a standard grand piano enhanced by digital technology developed by Andrew Robertson). More details to follow as the project progresses...
January 2013 - Re-oscillations for soprano saxophone, piano, percussion and tape will receive it's first performance by the Workers Union Ensemble in a workshop led by Michael Finnissy at the University of Southampton as part of an RMA conference on 4th January. See event listings for more information.
December 2012 - You can see Andrew perform the bass solo role in Handel's Messiah at St. Giles-in-the-Field's, London, on Wednesday 19th December at 6pm.
November 2012 - Andrew's arrangement of Mark Anthony Turnages Sweet and Decay from 'Blood on the Floor' has received its first performance in Birmingham by the Thallein Ensemble conducted by Sian Edwards. The piece will then be toured in the Netherlands by Orkest de Ereprijs in December 2012 (and possibly more dates in 2013). See event listings for more details.
Also in November Andrew's Song Fragments for baritone and ensemble received their third performance of the year at the 21st International Review of composers in Belgrade. They received an excellent performance from Construction Site Ensemble conducted by Premil Petrovic with baritone Vladimir Dinic. You can hear the recording in the listen section of the site.
