      Recent seasons have included debuts in Istanbul and Barcelona, a residency at the Academie du Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, tours of Scotland, Ireland, and the Netherlands, a CD recorded at the Jacqueline du Pre Music Building, Oxford (generously supported by Tony Stuart), and residencies at the Rye Arts Festival and the Lincolnshire International Music Festival.

Recent highlights have also included performances with pianists Tom Poster (at the Roman River Festival), Clare Hammond (BBC Radio 3 live broadcast from the Belfast International Music Festival), and Charles Owen.
