Maidenhead Music Society concert

Norden Farm Centre for the Arts is one of those rare theatre venues which is attractive to look at and well equipped but is also acoustically excellent and has a great piano! Having played here with Alexandra and Charlotte Reid a few years back, it was a pleasure to return with Marcus Farnsworth as part of this year's Maidenhead Music Society series. Our first half comprised a set of Schubert songs and then Mahler's glorious Rückert Lieder; it has been a joy to perform these several times so far this year and to feel them settle and our understanding of them continue to grow! The second half gave us a chance to reprise Barber's Op 10 settings of James Joyce from last week's Manchester recital, and then concluded with one of the absolute staples of our repertoire, and one of the glories of the English repertoire, Finzi's Earth and Air and Rain. Looking forward to repeating this programme in Machynlleth next week!
