Tagore Composition Competition

I was delighted to be told that I recently won the Tagore Composition Competition – part of the 2013 Encounters India Festival, with my piece “Unending Love” a soprano and piano setting of Tagore’s poem of the same name.

It was wonderfully performed in the festival at the Queensland Conservatorium on 19th May, 2013, by the brilliant Greta Bradman and Leigh Harrold.
