In Easter week, my dear friend and a wonderful musician, Stephen Knight and myself gave a series of concerts in Madrid dedicated to the poems of the German mystic and philosopher, Christian F. Gellert. We performed works by CPE Bach and Beethoven of very different settings to the same poems. Here are two extracts from the Programme......

Gosh, far too long since I've posted on my blog. But so much has happened!
Going back to October I took an amazing trip to the USA. Supported by the SGAE Foundation, I joined with the fantastic pianist, Nelson Ojeda Valdes to give performances of Spanish Music of the last 100 years entitled 'Songs of New Spain'. We gave concerts in New York, at the Redeemer Concert series in Astoria and then over to California to perform at the Riverside University and Fullerton College.
You can hear excerpts of the concert here on Soundcloud.

Hello. Hope you're all enjoying the Summer. So hot here in Madrid!
I sang a lovely concert on July 14th with the Group ACSE. A programme of Contemporary Spanish song with a 40 degree heat humming outside. I was able to include the Albeniz and Granados songs in preparation for my concerts in the US in the Autumn and also some songs by Blanquer, Gombou which are rarely performed. Always a privilege to perform works by Francisco Otero and in this case, it was a first performance.
Before running off on holiday, I have one more concert and am very excited to be performing it with my dear friend, Nelson Ojeda from New York.
Here's the link. Happy holidays!!
