I am looking forward to playing a programme of Barbara Strozzi with Canadian soprano Janet Youngdahl and harpsichordist and musicologist Vivian Montgomery, on Thursday 5 September CD of the same out very soon!
Remember the song Didn’t We have a Lovely Time on the Way to Bangor? It was number 3 in 1980 and I knew all the words, thank you Fiddler’s Dram. I’m on the way and the toilet just spoke to me in Welsh which is now a Thing with Virgin Trains.
Very excited to have started up as Oxford University’s Director of Performance. Getting to know the Music Faculty and soon the students. Its a move along the A34 from Southampton where I’m grateful for 12 great years.
It may be set to snow over Easter, but head over to Wigmore for some Italian sunshine and an amazing lineup of singers and players on Tuesday 3rd April. Monteverdi’s and his cool contemporary Sigismondo d’India, and more passionate Italian trio sonatas than you can shake a stick at…
Looking forward to this recital on Thursday 2 Nov in the lovely Wax Chandlers Hall: where else would you get lots of candles? …as part of this year’s London Bach Fest. You can catch a preview on In Tune tomorrow.
