What an absolute joy to be back at Uppingham! I had a wonderful two years there as a sixth-former and hold extremely fond memories of the place, so it was a delight to be asked to give a recital with Marcus Farnsworth as part of the Uppingham Concerts series. The Paul David Music School has been built since I left and includes a recital hall which is where we performed a Schubert set, Mahler's glorious Rückert-Lieder, Moeran's Norfolk folksongs arrangements (Moeran himself having been both pupil and teacher at Uppingham!) and then Finzi's Earth and Air and Rain. Great to see so many students in the audience, and lovely to meet up with various people during the day.
