Exciting week

Well, I thought this week wasn’t exciting enough so accepted a last minute invite on BBC Radio 3‘s In Tune with Suzy Klein ahead of my big concert with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Maxime Tortelier on Saturday. You can hear me talk and play live from around 4.30pm tomorrow afternoon on the usual http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03s64z5 Enjoy:-)

Had a lovely time on BBC Radio 3 this afternoon. Talked to Suzy Klein about Friday’s events and tinkled the ivories with a bit of Dutilleux and Chopin. Showed her a photo of my frock for Friday’s concert and she says “Oh yes!”. So we’re ready to rock the stage:-) at Broadcasting House
