I was very honoured to receive an invitation for a breakfast meeting with “woman” conductor Marin Alsop, Jude Kelly, Artistic Director at Southbank Centre, Gillian Moore, Head of Classical Music at Southbank and Jessica Duchen journalist about Women in Classical Music yesterday morning. Legged it to the station straight after for a concert last night in Whitstable, where I ‘aired’ Shostakovich Preludes op 34 and Bach Prelude and fugue b minor for the first time. There’s something very special about first times, isn’t it? Thank goodness for the extra hour’s sleep as there’s another concert today in a beautiful church in Wethersfield. Hopefully will get back home before the storm…!
