Recent chamber collaborations

Matthew recently collaborated with new music specialists Ossian Ensemble in two festival appearances.



At the Sounds New Festival in Canterbury the Ossians played works by Jonathan Harvey, Bent Sørensen, Anne Boyd, Messiaen, and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. The concert also included the world premieres of Eden by Darren Bloom, and of Isochronous by Patrick Nunn, which Matthew performed with percussionist Sarah Cresswell.

The group also performed in a sell-out event in the newly established Kew Music Festival, performing the 20th-century masterpiece Eight Songs for a Mad King by the ensemble's Honorary Patron, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. The baritone was Kelvin Thomas. The event included a drinks reception, a private access-all-areas tour of the Palace and a talk by historian David Blomfield MBE. Festival Director Spencer Down wrote: 'A fantastic performance ... We feel very privileged to have you perform at our first festival.’
