David has been commissioned by Cadenza Music to compile and edit a new anthology of Christmas choral works, which will be published at the end of the year. The collection will include new/recent works by composers as diverse as Phillip Cashian, Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Gordon Crosse, Cecilia McDowall and Michael Zev Gordon.
David will conduct at three events during the Brandenburg Choral Festival in London. On February 22nd he will join the composer Howard Goodall, soloists from the Royal Academy of Music and a chorus of singers for a day of workshops, rehearsals and a performance of Goodall’s popular choral work 'Eternal Light'
David’s two-part study of Polish choral music (featuring the music of Lutoslawski and Panufnik, both of whom David knew) appeared in the September/October and November/December editions of ‘Choir & Organ’ (www.choirandorgan.com).
David took part in the Ealing Autumn Festival as both pianist and conductor. The festival celebrated the centenary of the birth of Benjamin Britten. The Addison Singers joined Voskresenije, a group of professional singers from St Petersburg, in works by Rachmaninov and Shostakovitch (in Russian of course!), under the expert guidance of Jurij Maruk.
