Recital at Snape Maltings

James Gilchrist and I recently gave a recital as part of a special weekend at Snape Maltings focussing on the work of Imogen Holst – daughter of the celebrated composer Gustav, music assistant to Benjamin Britten, and distinguished composer in her own right. Women composers featured prominently in our programming, with works by Holst herself, Maconchy, and Priaulx Rainier. Music by John Ireland, Gustav Holst and Britten’s ‘Canticle I’ completed a very special evening.
