I've recently been working on several projects:
- Entries on 'Edward Holmes', 'Philharmonic Society and New Philharmonic Society', and 'Reception' for The Cambridge Berlioz Encyclopedia, ed. Julian Rushton (December 2017)
- An article about the commercial arm of the original Philharmonic Society of London, the Regent's Harmonic Institution. This material forms the basis of recent seminars I've given in London, Belfast and Maynooth, as 'Taking Stock: Art, Commerce and the Cooperative Model in British Music Publishing, 1819-24'.
- A monograph on orchestral culture in late 19th- and early 20th-century London, chiefly at Queen's Hall, Langham Place (in preparation)
- A monograph on the history and development of British music scholarship (in planning)
- 'Tristan's Death and Lohengrin's Dream: Looking for Wagner in John Singer Sargent', Eleventh Biennial Conference on Music in 19th-Century Britain, University of Birmingham, 30 June 2017, a paper under revision as an article
