This looks like a very interesting set of concerts. I especially welcome the Sonatas by White and the pieces by Méreaux (and the Sorabji).
I bemoan the fact that I can never attend this sort of series, living across the water in Northern Ireland.
I simply can't afford to make it over, much to my dissatisfaction!
