Her work has featured at the BBC Proms, Aldeburgh, Tanglewood, Aix-en-Provence and Verbier Festival. Several renowned conductors have performed her work and these include Sir Mark Elder, Oliver Knussen and Sakari Oramo. Recent premieres include: The Certainty of Tides (December 2019), for solo cello and strings, Natalie Clein and the Aurora Orchestra; triple concerto Germinate (May 2019), Sitkovetsky Trio and the Philharmonia, Investec International Music Festival; Red Swans Floating (June 2019), notabu.ensemble and Spectra Ensemble, Tonhalle Düsseldorf; Bring Me All Your Dreams (June 2019), Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Aldeburgh Festival.
