The Contemporary and the Classic

Emma begins the year practising the John Dankworth Concerto to play in the National concert hall Dublin as well as Jonathan Dove’s Pied Piper to play in collaboration with children from Cumbria.(See Concerts page for more details). At the same time she is looking forward to two London performances of clarinet masterpieces: the Mozart Concerto on the Southbank (February 24th), and the Mozart and Brahms Clarinet Quintets at the Wigmore Hall with the Michelangelo Quartet (March 1st).

Even further back in history although ever relevant today, Emma has also been thinking about Bach – see her article about the Goldberg Variations in Emma’s Articles http://www.emmajohnson.co.uk/pure-goldberg/
