Spitalfields updates on Twitter

You can follow me now on Twitter with updates on all the goings on at the wonderful Spitalfields Festival. Last night’s concert was an amazing buzz! Reading through Mozart oboe 5tet with Nick Daniel, Brahms clarinet with Julian Bliss, and then Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence with Priya Mitchell, Giovanni Guzzo, Krzysztof Chorzelski, Simone van der Giessen and Jamie Walton – amazing! Without rehearsal, we wanted to show the exhilaration of the first run-through, and the intensity of concentration that we found was quite intoxicating. One of the year’s highlight for me.
