Weekend of rehearsals

Spent the day rehearsing with the Berkeley Ensemble for our concerts in Streatham and Leicester in February. It was great to be able to rehearse in St Peter's Church in Streatham, where the Berkeley Ensemble have a residency which enables them to use the space for rehearsal in return for giving concerts there. A good deal all round! The day was kick-started with an inspiring session with composer Thomas Hewitt-Jones; James Turnbull and I are imminently recording his Sonata Ciamarella at Eastcote Studios, so it was useful to make some last-minute tweaks to our interpretation to ensure it's just how the composer wants it!
