  • What do you prefer to listen to? Serious classical music, expertly performed – or something more random? or. mix of both? “Improv Tour” is a concept that I have been working on for the past three years, increasing the amount of improvisation in the baroque music that I typically play. The last two songs you […]
  • Sometimes at times like these, it is important to reach out, keep well, keep safe.  I just thought, while April studios is closed for a few weeks, it would be nice to create something different, easy to listen to, thought provoking. I didn’t use a metronome, I just played how it feels. Think of it […]
  • One of my standout recordings from April Studios – the Sonata recording – was played by Sarah Gosling on BBC just a couple of evenings ago; here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07frg48 . You got to travel some 1hr 35 mins in – but well worth it, and Sarah said some lovely things. Thankyou!    
  • I discuss the background for my upcoming Concert for the Plymouth Liberal Democrats on June 22nd at Hope Baptist Church in the evening. Its not often – that I get such a super intro;  and it has taken time to put together!  Our original concept was a soft or “Ronnie Scotts” style of evening – […]
  • “Sonata” was always conceived as a three-movement piece, in the classic way – but somehow got railroaded into being stand-alone. There just seems to be so much more to say in this one movement, and being able to link several melodies and ideas, all in the one piece, seems to work great.  But it did […]
  • Hi! It’s always great to be invited back to do a new Concert – but none better than the fantastic cathedral-like Church in centre of Kristianstad! I will be playing a new Concert of new jazz interpretations of J S Bach Preludes and Fugues – but also focussing on my own new music, to be […]
  • Here is an advance copy of my new Christmas music, taken from a super Carol that I really love but not often gets played. This is a gentle adaptation. It is ready to download, FREE, for you this Christmas.  Just go to the Music Library, and click to download!  Welcome.

  •   Here are our LATEST pics to show what BlossMusic can do for a business uniqueness.
  • After a chance meeting at Stockport Station, on the Virgin train out of Manchester, Rachel is a brilliant romantic and impressionist pianist.  Have a look at www.racheltaverner.co.uk. A great complement to my own jazz based J S Bach.  There is a real possibility of offering joint performance, thru to community music programmes.
  • New Songs…
    I am creating Two new songs, – one for my good friend Galyna in Vinnitsa – she has been very patient!  And Edith in Brussels has asked for a Song.  Both are very different, so the question is – what will work best for them. I will let you know when they are published! Throughout […]
  • Music Logos
    We were talking yesterday with Blur Group about offering our Music Logos to the corporate community, via their platform.  I am very excited about how to use music to communicate corporate values.  If we can write and perform music that reaches out to people, in a more intuitive way – this is a real next […]
  • Next week we are auditioning to play a range of Concerts at the acclaimed TR2 in Plymouth. The question is whether our eclectic versions of Bach will fit – or whether we focus purely on our own more modern material.
  • My new BlossMusic website is designed to bring together all the elements that you love – music, videos, photos – all under one roof. We have made it very easy for you to download and buy any of the songs, listen to any of the tracks, tell your friends, and keep in touch with me. […]
