This week: Der Wegweiser from Winterreise. Please send me your requests. I would love to record it for you!
This is my dear friend Juan Manuel Gonzalez Hernandez. The situation in Venezuela is untenable and we are helping him raise enough funds to get his family on a plane to Mexico, sort out their visas, pay lawyer fees and get them settled. There is violence on the streets, torture in the jails, inflation at 720%, no food in the supermarkets, no medicine in the hospitals.
We are putting on a special concert with my friend, the programme will feature Shostakovich 8th quartet, works by Piazzolla, Cardozo and Mendelssohn. Please come, thank you already for your kind support already on the crowdfunder. We will broadcast on Facebook video next week as well for those of you unable to get to London. Thanks.
11th August, St Peter's Belsize Square, 7pm.
