L’art du hautbois

Stepped in at the last minute for a recital with James Turnbull (oboe) at Luton Music Club, held in the Library Theatre.  It is always both daunting and liberating to be stepping in at short notice – this programme had more than its fair share of challenges (Britten's Temporal Variations, York Bowen's sonata, an arrangement of Ravel's Sonatine…) but it was a lovely chance to get to perform it, and to revisit some repertoire we have not played for several years!
