My concert, just past

Post by gchristian »

I see there hasn't been a lot of activity on this topic, but I thought I'd mention that I gave a Covid-era concert this past Saturday, September 26.

Congratulations Graham, a heady mixture of Rum, Tequila, Pina Colada and heavens knows what else, good to see that some people are interested in music other than the regulation stuff, wish I could have been there. Currently I am returning to Liszt Harmonies poetiques et religieuses, what a cycle and so satisfying to play, fortunately they have never outstayed their welcome and throw up many challenges. Keep up the good work and post your future programmes for us to savour.
best wishes
