Concert in Cardigan

Travelled for 7 hours (!!!) to Wales and had a very enjoyable concert this evening in Cardigan. The audience was amazing and my hosts were incredibly welcoming- the Lady of the house is French, so it was very fitting to have a proper cheese board at the end of supper. Delicious! Tomorrow back to London […]

Thank you with all my heart for the most special time at the Enescu Festival. I loved every second of it:-) Magic! at Sala Palatului.
