I have been working on a new video. We filmed it last week at a wonderful old building with some great architecture. It always takes a log time to get everything just right on a video, but its really worth it when you see the finished result.

Here is a raw clip from the shoot, I hope we can release the final version very soon.

Last week I travelled to Munich to film a short intervew which will be used to promote a project which I m working on with The Argo Ensemble in Germany. Argo are conducted by Ektoras Tartanis and are a groundbreaking orchestra, combining performance and classical music in many of their varied projects.

It is great working with Ektoras and I can’t wait until we can perform the final work together!

I have just come back to the UK after spending a week in North Carolina. I was there for a performance of Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 with The Carolina Philharmonic so I decided to try creating a vlog for the trip. Was great fun filming it, hope you will enjoy watching it!

The concert went really well, the audience were wonderful! A huge thank you to the conductor David Michael Wolff and his orchestra.

I was lucky enough to be invited to watch Aida at The Metropolitan Opera while I was in New York last week. The production was incredible with Aleksandrs Antonenko singing the part of Radames alongside Anna Netrebko as Aida. The performance was totally awe inspiring and a great experience for me.

The Metropolitan is a beautiful opera house with a great history of incredible performances and I feel so happy that I had the opportunity to watch this opera here.

Here is a clip of Aleksandrs Antonenko and Anna Netrebko singing together… wonderful!
