I do love THE INDEPENDENT, and not just because Jess writing for it helps to keep me in Science Plan Low Cal kitty food. They have the good sense to run THIS today. Know your readers, know your readers' cats. That's what I say.
Writing words for, with and about music. Novels, stage works, biographies, classical music journalism. Libretto for 'Silver Birch', Roxanna Panufnik's opera for Garsington 2017 ("powerful and poetic" - The Times). Latest novel 'Ghost Variations', the true story of the Schumann Violin Concerto's 1930s rediscovery. Performing narrated concerts based on it ("highly moving" - Birmingham Post). Now crowdfunding 'Meeting Odette', a 21st-century fairytale.
I receive a lot of requests for coverage on JDCMB, but even with the best will in the world, I can't do it all. Adverts available if desired.
