His extensive list of compositions includes three major commissions for the BBC Proms: The Spirit's Harvest (1985), Time's Arrow (1990) – recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis for NMC – and Visions and Journeys (2002), which was voted by BBC Radio 3 listeners as the winner of the Audience Award in the 2003 British Composer Awards. He is also in demand as a teacher and lecturer, and has been Visiting Professor at Mills College, California and Composition Tutor at the New South Wales Conservatorium, Australia, to name but a few; he holds Honorary Doctorates from the Universities of Birmingham and Kingston, and was recently made a Fellow of the Royal College of Music.
