Back from a wonderful first visit to Dartington International Summer School.  As one of their resident accompanists, the job entails playing for a full schedule of masterclasses all week –  in my case, mostly for singers, who were taught by James Gilchrist and Lee Bisset, but also occasionally for oboes and cellos!   Alongside this it was a joy to play a couple of concerts in the three-a-day lineup –  particularly a recital of Berg and Rachmaninov with Lee Bisset, but also other appearances such as a six-pianist piece by Percy Grainger!  Dartington is known for its rare bringing together of professionals and amateurs: it was fascinating finally to see this in action and be a part of it!
