On the 24th March 2012 my new version of `Earthrise’ published by Studio Music will be performed by two of the world’s outstanding wind orchestras – the first by the Göteborg Symphonic Band under the baton of David Lundblad in their home town in Sweden and the second by the Band of the Grenadier Guards conducted by their new Director of Music, Captain Mike Smith in this year’s BASWE London Festival. I have had the privilege to work with these two orchestras before and witnessed many extraordinary performances, both as Associate Composer to The Band of the Grenadier Guards and in 2010 with the premiere of my Violin Concerto (Black Fire) by Göteburg Symphonic Band.
