For the Spring…

Emma has uploaded a new blog about those musicians of nature, birds.

She is looking forward to giving the first concert performance of Patrick Hawes’ evocative new concerto inspired by the English countryside in Norwich. See details on the Concerts Page as well as information about performances of Mozart, Weber and Paul Reade and Benny Goodman coming up.

Robert Beale in the Manchester Evening News wrote of her recent Mozart Concerto at the Bridgewater Hall with the Vienna Tonkunstler Orchestra:

“individual and inimitable..Emma Johnson knows this piece as well as anybody on earth, probably, and she had every phrase thought out and built to make a narrative (at times a drama and even a comedy). Her tone was gentle but unmistakably graceful and the finale became like an evening of chamber music as she nodded her thoughts to the concert master and the orchestra responded”
