Linari Classics Festival

Written by Jayson, Wednesday 20th July 2016

Tonight was truly a glorious evening. Opening recital of the Linari Classic Festival – my home in Tuscany! Thank you so much Deborah Humble for being a wonderful musician and a great colleague – plenty of laughs and good yarns! Thank you also to Joris van Rijn, an extremely fine musician and easy going sunny person. Last night was a real treat for all, it is so rewarding when you feel the audience give back so much. They really love their music here.

Note that I will be appearing in the Festival, performing piano quintets with the wonderful Carducci Quartet.

Two Moors Festival — 16-25 October 2014
Artistic Director:  Penny Adie (pictured)

With six months to go before the festival balloon goes up on the 16th October, the Two Moors Festival is letting slip that audience figures are sometimes boosted by the presence of the odd dog or two.

There has never been lack of imagination involved in the development of this now major arts organisation, and ... Read more
