It’s been two weeks now since Chichi Nwanoku, Annette Isserlis, Lisa Beznosiuk, Luise Buchberger, Persephone Gibbs, and George Clifford played a chamber recital at my studio, in aid of helping me raise money to fund my exhibition in June at The Royal Festival Hall.

About 75 people came, and roughly another 30 people generously contributed but could not attend. I’ve now raised nearly half of what I need, and will shortly be uploading a crowd-funding platform to try and raise the remaining amount.

My thanks first of all to these great¬†musicians who played a wonderful programme of Mozart, Dragonetti, Haydn and Bach. It was such a privilege to hear live music performed in my studio (and Alison’s and my home!). It was an intimate event, and brought to mind the salons of the past. Also – a big thank you to all the people who came, listened and drank.
