Great News!!! Our disc SOLITUDE is out on Chandos records.
Purcell, Schubert, Dove and Barber. Four great works exploring solitude: the romantic idealist seeking out meaning in life's journey, and finding it only in a meditative solitude in the forest; the bereaved, finding a way of managing the appaling loneliness after the loss of a loved one; the mediaeval monk in his cell showing us how huiman he is at heart. All these explored in a time when we in 2020 find ourselves locked away from each other and society by disease. Anna and I are really delighted with this disc, and I very much hope you will find something in it for you! See the new tab called SOLITUDE above.
Camilla Wehmeyer Management. Things move quickly. Camilla, who was one of those who lost her job with the loss of Hazard Chase, has set up her own agency. Those of us on her rosta are very lucky to have Camilla to look after us. Some good news at last!
Hazard Chase and Corona Virus Alas, the corona virus shutdown has resulted in enormous problems for performers. Hazard Chase, the wonderful agency which has looked after me for nearly 25 years, has gone into liquidation. It was a really great company, with honest, talented people working to bring the arts to life, and had been going for nearly 30 years.
