Back to the sea!

Back in sunny Brighton, this time for a concert with Marielle Way, flautist. The Chapel Royal is a beautiful, intimate, resonant venue and the lunchtime concert series seems to have a great following as it was packed out for this recital.  It was a good chance to revisit some repertoire from last year (sonatas of Bach and Poulenc) but also in particular to add Frank Martin's Ballade, a devastatingly haunting piece of musical drama and beauty.
