Amazing evening at Wilton’s Music Hall earlier this month (6th June) – the last classical music concert there before renovation. The hall was full to capacity and the stage looked fantastic with a painting by artist Joanna Jones hung in the background. Such a privilege to work with a great group of musicians: Aisha Orazbayeva, Midori Komachi, Preetha Narayanan, Alice Barron, Steven Crichlow & Annabelle Berthomé Reynolds (violins), Diana Mathews (viola), Jessica Hayes & Valerie Wellbanks (cellos), Rachel Meerloo (double bass), and of course, Morgan Goff and Peter Sheppard Skaerved from the Kreutzer Quartet.
We had a fantastic time performing Mendelssohn’s Octet and his early D minor concerto; also on the programme was my new piece for solo violin (Peter) and strings, Dyptich, commissioned specially for this event and dedicated to our dear friend, photographer Richard Bram.
Here are a few photos from the day:
