Just returned from three days of recording at Champs Hill, the popular 'new kid on the block' of purpose-built recital and recording venues! Set in stunning Sussex countryside, this was an idyllic place to be for a few days. This is a disc of English oboe music, with James Turnbull, produced by the superb Richard Surcliffe, and will be released later this year. We were sandwiched between two live broadcasts by the BBC as part of their Radio 3 Spirit of Schubert week – it's obviously the place to be this week! Lovely also to pop over to Dunsfold Music Circle on the middle day for a recital with Cara Berridge; Chopin and Debussy cello sonatas made a complete change from English oboe repertoire!
