Pavarotti Prize

Back at the Royal Academy of Music yesterday to play for the Pavarotti Prize, in which each final-year opera student sings two substantial opera arias to a sizeable adjudicating panel and equally discerning audience!  Something of marathon as accompanist to the whole lot, but a great chance to catch up with the latest crop of talent there.  Congratulations to Stuart Jackson on winning, after outstanding performances of Ah dov'è, dov'è il cimento from Semiramide and Go there! from Peter Grimes
