A new project is up and running. The beginning of a set of exciting new caprices from my dear friend and collaborator Roger Redgate. Fantastic to have this on the desk today with works by Gabrieli and de Machy. Roger Redgate is one of the most exciting and challenging composers working today, makes wonderful demands on his players in order to achieve results of explosive sensuality and mind-blowing impact.
