Wye Valley Music Society

The phonecall you don’t want to receive from a duo partner on the morning of a concert is “I’m sorry, I’m not very well”, but having explored various contingency plans, James Turnbull and I went ahead with today’s recital, with a revised programme (removing the Howells Sonata, which even famed oboist Leon Goosens considered extraordinarily difficult!).  The Wye Valley Music Society uses the beautiful St Briavels Church and it was a pleasure to play this revised programme of Vivaldi, Poulenc, Finzi, Schumann, Brahms and Vaughan Williams to such a warm audience.
