A concert in support of All Saints Church, Long Ashton - a lovely location - with Pat Leighton (soprano), Helen Roberts (mezzo) and Martin Le Poidevin (bass-baritone). 

Music will include French chansons, German Lieder, Mozart opera (including Soave sia il vento) and much more. We'll bring a touch of warmth to your November evening!


This is a list of many of the pieces which I've performed in the course of 30 years of performing.

This year I'm listening to all the Mahler and Brucker symphonies over the summer holiday, movement by movement, one day at a time. I think I've got enough days to fit it all in. I don't have a plan but I do intend to hang it around the Proms, which include performances of (I believe) Mahler 1, 4, 5, 6 and 9 and Bruckner 7. [Update: Since the holiday cottage we've booked apparently has no wifi I won't be able to use iPlayer after all, so I'm listening to some of these on Spotify download after all.] All the others will have to fit around those (although I'll be using iPlayer, of course, for those). 

Otherwise I'm generally planning on using Spotify, although if I've still got some CDs lying around I might use them. 

Towards the end of this year I'm listening to all the Vaughan Williams symphonies - plus a couple of extras. 

I'm generally planning on using Spotify, although if I've still got some CDs lying around I might use them.

This was last year's listening project, so it's now closed. 

If there's interest, I'll resurrect it as a public list.
