Sadie’s music is regularly performed and broadcast internationally with works released on various labels including Naxos, Cadenza and Toccata Classics. Her music is published by UYMP, ABRSM and Recital Music.
Her focus during 2015-16 was the collaborative project Gulistan-e Nur: The Rosegarden of Light, working with US Ensemble Cuatro Puntos (with whom she is Composer- in-Residence) and students from the Afghanistan National Institute of Music (where she is Composer-in-Association). This unique project brought together musicians from three continents in tours across the USA and Europe. The resulting The Rosegarden of Light CD was released in 2016 to great critical acclaim with BBC Radio 3’s Record Review describing it as ‘moving and intriguing’.
Sadie was appointed as Visiting Fellow to Goldsmiths College in 2015 in recognition of her research work on Afghanistan. 2015 also saw the release of a portrait CD by Toccata Classics, described as a ‘disc of glittering intensity’ (Observer) and ‘beautiful and intriguing’ (BBC Music Magazine).
January 2017 has already been busy with Sapida-Dam-Nau for the Afghanistan Women’s Orchestra (Ensemble Zohra) being premiered at the Closing Concert of the World Economic Forum, Davos with subsequent performances in Geneva, Zurich, Weimar and Berlin. Sadie was also appointed as the first Composer-in-Residence at the Bei Wu Sculpture Park.
A disc of her piano music performed by Ian Pace, Pippa Harrison, Duncan Honeybourne and Renée Reznek will be recorded for Prima Facie in April.
Sadie is a member of the British Music Collection’s Steering Group, a composition mentor with the South West Music School and tutor with New Music in the South West.
