I’m happy to meet your requirements for classical music programme notes and preview features, covering all periods and genres (opera, orchestral, choral, chamber, vocal, instrumental) from the age of Haydn and Mozart onwards. And as a composer myself, I naturally have wide knowledge of the music of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Depending on on the amount of fresh research I may need to do, my fees are negotiable. You’ll find them competitive and realistic.

In the submenus and links below, you’ll find links and downloads to:

  • a complete list of my programme notes already on file
  • sample programme notes (which you’re free to reproduce without charge, provided that you contact me beforehand, don’t change anything, and clearly display my name and copyright when publishing)
  • a list of my books on music, including current projects
