I’m very happy to announce that Seb Wyss and I just won first prize at the Weiner Leó National Chamber Music Competition in Budapest. It was a great honour to play before a prestigious jury that consisted of Tamás Vásáry, Péter Frankl, Béla Kovács and György Pauk. We both feel very grateful and privileged to be awarded this prize and look forward to playing concerts around Europe next year! ... See MoreSee Less

We Kiwis at home and around the world stand together today in defiance of the atrocity committed in our country a week ago. At this time of great adversity as we unite in deep reflection and mourn the victims, we are reminded that we are all one human family, that “we are more alike than we are unalike”. Shout out to my mate and fellow Christchurch boy Chris Bruerton​ of The King's Singers​; your heart must be aching like all of ours. Aroha.

"Human Family"
by Maya Angelou

I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.

Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.

The variety of our skin tones
can confuse, bemuse, delight,
brown and pink and beige and purple,
tan and blue and white.

I've sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I've seen the wonders of the world
not yet one common man.

I know ten thousand women
called Jane and Mary Jane,
but I've not seen any two
who really were the same.

Mirror twins are different
although their features jibe,
and lovers think quite different thoughts
while lying side by side.

We love and lose in China,
we weep on England's moors,
and laugh and moan in Guinea,
and thrive on Spanish shores.

We seek success in Finland,
are born and die in Maine.
In minor ways we differ,
in major we're the same.

I note the obvious differences
between each sort and type,
but we are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.

We are more alike, my friends,
than we are unalike.
