Virtually all planned events from March 2020 onward were cancelled due to COVID-19. My spring and summer should have included appearances with the Orchestre d’Auvergne (Mahler 4), the Academy of Ancient Music and Choir of King’s College Cambridge (Bach St. John Passion), and several performances at Ireland’s idyllic West Cork Chamber Music Festival, among other dates.

Some of my 2020-21 plans seem to be going ahead; see my upcoming performances page for the most up-to-date information. During the months of enforced isolation, pianist Sam Armstrong and I worked together deeply on an unusual and challenging French recital program, Regards sur l’Infini, that we recorded in the summer on Dutch label 7 Mountain Records. The disc will be released in late November 2020. Read more about the project here.
