Christmas Cheer and Plans for the New Year

Christmas is finally here and I’m looking forward to my final performance of 2015 at H&F Vintage Tearooms in Chesterfield on Christmas Eve at 1pm. Accompanied by Roy Phillips on the piano, I will be playing well-known songs by Ivor Novello and Irving Berlin and there will be an opportunity for everyone to sing along to Christmas carols. H&F Vintage Tearooms, winner of Cafe/Tea Room of the Year in the Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards 2015, is the perfect place to escape to and relax with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, or one of the loose-leaf teas and stunning cakes.


I am also pleased to announce that my debut CD ‘The Lark in the Chapel’ is now ready for sale (information on how to purchase it will follow). The disc includes Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending, along with works by Biber, J.S.Bach and Messiaen.

I hope to see many of you at my concerts during 2016, which will feature Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio (30th January, Chesterfield Library) and the second instalment in my series of the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas (13th February, St Andrew’s Church, Sheffield). In the meantime I hope you all have a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
