An evening of cello music

Hugely enjoyable concert with Cara Berridge last night at Dunsfold Music Circle. This series rotates around a number of venues in the village, and yesterday we were performing in the beautiful home of Rupert and Claire Howell. This was the first outing of a programme which we will repeat in various guises over the next year: Beethoven's C major sonata was framed with pieces by Francoeur and Fauré, and then the second half consisted of Rachmaninov's sonata. It was wonderful to perform this huge work for the first time; written shortly after the second piano concerto, this is a glorious Rachmaninov combination of virtuosity and stunning melodies!
