Last week I performed a lunchtime concert at St. James’s Church in Piccadilly, London. I have visited St. James’s on several occasions to watch recitals and I always love coming here for the peaceful atmosphere it creates in the middle of the city.
The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren after The Great Fire of London and the acoustics are perfect for a piano recital.
The programme I performed included works by Scarlatti, Chopin and Strauss.
The audience were incredibly supportive which was great for my performance. Thank you to everyone who helped to organise the recital and to everyone who came to watch. Special thanks to Josephine Cumming for the lovely gift!
