On 17th September, wonderful flautist Klio Blonz will be playing my ‘Disturbed Nights’ (originally for oboe) at the Hurst Festival.
It was written for artist/musician Emily Bakker who drew this mildly disturbing picture while babysitting one of our children … hence the title!
This is Klio Blonz’s second performance of the piece.
My Sonata Serenata for flute and piano having just had a wonderful performance at The Presteigne Festival by Katherine Bryan and Tom Poster gets another outing at St Martin in the Fields lunchtime concert on 3rd September with Emma Halnan and Daniel King Smith.
