Below you’ll find a list of conference papers and research seminars delivered since 2005. I’ve also bee involved in organising several conferences at the Royal College of Music: ‘Brahms in the Home’ in 2011 (which has provided the bases for a co-edited book due to be published in 2014) and ‘Singing a Song in a Foreign Land’ in 2014, part of a major European project on the role of émigré musicians in twentieth-century British musical life.
