“I am a composer of classical contemporary piano music. In the last 12 years I have composed about 90 short piano pieces which are already available on CDs in the UK, America and Germany. Many of my pieces have been orchestrated by John Catchings using American musicians. My 4 CDs and 2 music books are available for sale at www.tutti.co.uk”
In 2007 Iris, together with Tom Salvatori, a classical guitarist from Illinois, produced the CD “When Evening Falls” published by Salvatori Productions, which won the NAR Award in America for the best Neo Classical Album of that year. It was orchestrated by John Catchings who plays the cello on several tracks.
Please visit Tom’s website at: www.salvatoriproductions.com to read all about it.
Last year Tom and Iris produced a follow up CD called: “Ever Ever On”, which again contains half of Iris’ compositions and half of Tom’s, played by the composers. Once again John Catching has added live orchestration by American musicians.
This year, Iris has recorded two new CDs. The first of these is called “Dream Clouds” which consists of 14 of her new piano compositions, recorded by Derek Nash at his own “Clown Pockets Studio” in Kent UK.
The second CD called “Romantic Interludes” is a new venture for Iris as it contains 19 piano duets, all by classical composers such as Schumann, Vaughan Williams and Elgar. It is played by Iris and Patrick Meehan.
Iris’ UK publisher is Northstar Music, who have produced a CD of her music called “Pause to Music”, sold by DA Music in Germany. (On the German website Litchfield is spelt Lichfield in case you wish to access it).
