Harrogate International Festival moves online: Tasmin Little @ Sunday, July 2020
A huge thank you to the Harrogate International Festival for being so innovative and supportive to musicians with their programming. Forced to cancel this year’s live festival due to Covid-19, they galvanised into action and moved to a virtual platform. In doing so they have given musicians and performers an opportunity to perform and receive an income.
Tasmin Little’s performance can be viewed this coming Sunday free of charge and there are many many other performances available from today.
More and more festivals and concert halls are turning to recorded events to help musicians through this period and to bring us music. A big shout out to all of them. Bravo.

“Lane plays them both with deep musical insight and virtuoso dash” Hugh Canning, Sunday Times, 28 June 2020
Rubbra and Bliss
Piers Lane (piano), the Orchestra Now, cond Leon Botstein Hyperion CDA68297
This series of “Romantic Piano Concertos” reaches its 81st volume with this pairing of the flamboyant Bliss concerto commissioned for the 1939 New York World Fair, and Rubbra’s more reflective, bucolic piece from the mid-1950s. Lane plays them both with deep musical insight and virtuoso dash, and throws in Morning Song, a short Arnold Bax piece that was a 21st birthday present for the then Princess Elizabeth.
