He orchestrated the national anthem to accompany Brian May on the roof of Buckingham Palace during the golden jubilee celebrations of 2002 and made a major contribution to the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games 2012 as both arranger and conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra with whom he has a long-standing relationship.

He somehow still finds time to write for the concert hall, where his most well known work is PHANTASIA, a double concerto for violin and cello based on themes from THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Commissioned by Andrew and Julian Lloyd Webber, it was recorded in 2005 for EMI Classics with Sarah Chang (violin), Julian Lloyd Webber (cello) and Simon Lee conducting.

In 2007 he was appointed Artistic Advisor to English Sinfonia. TOWARDS THE DAWN, featuring leader and soloist Janice Graham, was written for the orchestra in support of the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer and has become a regular fixture on Classic FM's playlist since it was released in 2008. His most recent work for the ensemble, YOU ARE HERE (2011) is another double concerto, this time for the unlikely combination of violin and bassoon.
