Evrything has been leading up to this final concert of the series. It is to be the world premiere of my orchestral transcription of Elgar's Piano Quintet.
His wife, Lady Alice suggested in her diary that this music he was writing should be a 'War Symphony', so a symphony I have attempted to make of it.
Large orchestral forces gathered n the morning for final rehearsals and preparation.
One last pre concert talk and we were off. It was applauded greatly and the conductor and I were called back to the stage for several minutes. Most exiting! The orchestra played up a storm and everyone gave of their best. No one could have asked for more.
So a job well done? We will have to wait for the press reviews…..nervously!
They will be posted on the website just as soon as they get published.
Check back soon to find out how we did.
