I am very excited about a project for this Summer and Autumn. I'm dipping my toes into the world of Jazz, with a wonderful project put together by Eddie Parker called Debussy Mirrored. In brief, Eddie has taken songs, piano and orchestral music of Claude Debussy and morphed it into a new work for Jazz Ensemble. It's wonderful. Read all about it HERE.
Our new Vaughan Williams CD is out. Chandos have made a beautiful cover showing the composer relaxing on his honeymoon in Germany. We were pleased with the sessions. Philip plays the Romance astonishingly beautifully. I hope people enjoy it.
MINDSONG is a charity in Gloucestershire that brings Music therapy to people suffering with dementia. It began as a small project, which over the years has grown hugely. Until recently, it has been working in Care Homes for people often with advanced dementia, and is now branching out into working in peoples' homes. To find out more, please visit the website. I'll be doing a concert in aid of this charity on the 7th October.
