His recent release, Home to Me, was premiered on Classic FM and now Charlotte takes a moment to reflect on the composer and pianist's achievements. At University he became the organ scholar at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge and has since gone on to compose for a number of ballets, classical ensembles and he also scored the London 2012 Olympics Mascot animated films.
