I spent a wonderful afternoon on Sunday in Richmond at the Orange Tree Theatre enjoying two contrasting performances which were part of the International Wimbledon Music Festival.
The first was a play written by author and music critic, Jessica Duchen, A Walk Through the End of Time which featured actors, Harriet Walter and Henry Goodman. A talk followed given by Anita Lasker-Wallfisch on The Women’s Orchestra in Auschwitz.
Both presentations were compelling and you can read my review here.

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
You can find out more about my other piano publications and compositions here.
