Special Projects

A Wagner discovery...

In 2006-7 James reconstructed and orchestrated Wagner's comic opera Männerlist grösser als Frauenlist (Men are more Cunning than Women) from sketches discovered in 1994. The completed work was premiered in October 2007 by the South Bank Sinfonia and Royal Opera House Chorus conducted by Stephen Barlow.

Read more about how James became involved in this project and about his experiences working on it.

Working in Film - The Clap!

In the autumn of 2004, James worked with Breakthru Films on the production of the short film 'The Clap'. Aside from compiling the soundtrack, he composed additional original material for several concert scenes - see The Clap and For He's a Jolly Good Fellow.

Watch the film and read more about James involvement in it.
