And our programme:

10 June 8p.m - 'Entente Cordiale', a recital

Tom Eisner, violin
Jessica Duchen, piano

EDWARD ELGAR (1857-1934): Violin Sonata in E minor
Allegro, Romance (Andante), Allegro non troppo


La Capricieuse


CLAUDE DEBUSSY (1862-1918): La plus que lente (arr. Leon Roques)

GABRIEL FAURE (1845-1924): Violin Sonata No.1 in A major, Op.13
Allegro molto, Andante, Allegro vivo, Allegro quasi presto

This is what we're playing at the Elgar Birthplace Museum tomorrow (1 June) as well, 7.30pm start.

SATURDAY 4 JUNE UPDATE: We've dropped the Delius piece & are replacing it with Elgar's 'Sospiri'. Nothing personal about Freddy - and I'm sorry to lose my lovely reading about when Elgar visited Delius in 1933 and told him what it's like to fly in an aeroplane - but we've played the Legende rather too much and it sort of doesn't work any more. Besides, Sospiri is just wonderful and nobody ever plays it.
