JULY 14th - Libertango performed by Ksenija Sidorova at the Concert de Paris
The Concert de Paris, held at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. It is one of the largest classical music events held anywhere in the world and is followed by a spectacular fireworks display, attracting thousands of live spectators. The concert is broadcast on France Inter, on France 2, and to 3.13m people, and upwards of 10m around Europe. This year I am proud and excited to say that my arrangement of Piazzolla's "Libertango" will be performed by Ksenija Sidorova and the Orchestre National de France conducted by Simone Young.
Helen and I have known each other for many years giving concerts together (she is a marvellous clarinettist) and more lately composing her quietly stated and very beautiful music which has proved so popular with Classic FM listeners . Following on from our earlier collaborations on CD Helen and I were once more in the recording studio with music newly composed by both of us as well as a host of other repertoire.

Here's one of our collaborations from the last CD, "Found in Winter" with some captivating artwork by Rupert Newman.
