Sacconi Festival

Brief foray down to the south coast this weekend for a recital as part of the Sacconi Quartet's festival in Folkestone. Now in its fifth year, the festival sees the quartet joined by various guest musicians each year. On Sunday afternoon Cara Berridge (their cellist) and I played music by Fauré and Schumann, and the Debussy sonata, which was followed by Ben Hancox (the quartet's first violinist) and Tom Poster playing the Elgar violin sonata. Wonderful to finally see the festival in action after hearing so much about it: it clearly has a very loyal following, and real 'buzz' to it!
