Meng Yang Pan in Kew

What a nostalgic visit to St Anne`s on Kew Green tonight to hear Meng Yang Pan in Mozart D minor Concerto.
In this very church where I was married 32 years ago to hear a superb young pianist,student of one of my closest student friends ,Tessa Nicholson.A very fine pianist that won a top prize in the International Piano Competition in Monza when I was on the jury in 2012.
Some very fine playing indeed under rather difficult circumstances.Very interesting to hear Clara Schumann cadenzas.
Interesting programme that made me want to stay on to hear Louise Farrencs 3rd Symphony.
French born,much admired by Schumann.Student of Moscheles and Hummel.Demanded equal pay at The Paris Conservatoire ,where she taught for ten years and succeeded in obtaining it after the premiere of her nonet.
Well performed by the Kew Sinfonia under their obviously enlightened conductor Marc Dooley.
Many of the refinements of a professional orchestra were missing but a musicianly sense of line and direction were admirably outlined.
Good attentive audience in this beautiful church where even before my marriage I had heard a memorable recital by Cherkassky who was to give so many recitals in the theatre in Rome that I built and ran for 30 years with my much missed wife Ileana Ghione
