Hudson has collaborated as the piano soloist premiering Paul Mealor’s Piano Concerto with the London Mozart Players which was praised by the Financial Times saying: “…the premiere of Paul Mealor’s Piano Concerto, a glittering conclusion, played with flair by John Frederick Hudson.” (Richard Fairman, Financial Times).
As composer, Hudson was commissioned by the Aix-en-Provence festival to set the Oscar Wilde text, VITA NUOVA, for orchestra, choir and soloist; the premiere received much acclaim.
