On May the 27th my interview for Andrew Ford's Saturday morning music programme on Radio National was broadcast. For those interested to hear it, it is preserved online. Put "Music Show ABC Radio National" into your internet search engine and you will find it easily.

On May the 16th there was a very successful session at the Trackdown studio, overdubbing the solo violin and cello parts for Robert Constable's Medea, which will appear on a future CD of mine. Soloists were the incomparable Dimity Hall and Julian Smiles.


I am still in the process of uploading works of mine to the Australian Music Centre. Recently my opera Dracula has become available, in both full orchestral and chamber versions, scores and parts. Eventually the première recording will also be available at the AMC.


I will be in Adelaide during the first week of July with Tall Poppies director Belinda Webster. There we will record the solo parts of two percussion concertos by Eric Bryce and David Morgan; soloist is the renowned Australian percussionist Ryszard Pusz. Later I will fit my orchestra to the solo percussion.

As an instrumentalist, David Stanhope was a french horn player for many years before switching to bass trombone; he is also a virtuoso pianist.
