Academy of friends

Ensemble ACJW has the most amazing collection of the nicest people and the finest musicians around. I had a great time on my residency at Skidmore with them, and then clarinettist Sarah Beaty and the ACJW quartet topped it all off by giving a really remarkable performance of Gumboots on Friday. The first part in particular sounded spectacular in the fine new Zankel Hall, and I'm sure it's only going to grow and be even better in both the forthcoming concert at Weill Hall on Tuesday (details here N.B. 7.30pm start), and at performances in Europe later in the year.

Here's a nice picture of me and the gang right after the performance in Saratoga:

And here's a very cool promotional video that Carnegie Hall organised for my concert on Tuesday at Weill Hall, featuring shots of us rehearsing the piece up in Skidmore College.
