Miles for Music

Posted on Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Presteigne is a charming village just over the border from England in mid-Wales. I was invited there this year by festival director George Vass, for the premiere of my Gigue, a little work with a lot of notes, for harpist Sally Pryce and flautist Adam Walker, who did a great job with a piece which is much harder to play than I realised! (I intend to make a few revisions)

The festival seems to be thriving with almost every concert packed out, even when it's in a tiny church far from the beaten track, and I had the pleaure of meeting several of the other featured composers, including Michael Berkeley, David Matthews and fellow Northerner Joe Duddell.

5 mins of music, 10 hours of driving - but it was worth it!
