Mozart to Enigma

Monday Classics 26th January 2009

Had a great chat with Michael Frith, the organist and pianist and
Visiting Lecturer of Music at Middlesex Univeristy, about the forthcoming
concert at All Saints Church, Doddinghurst on Sunday 1st February at 7pm.

Michael explained how the two Mozart Piano Concertos will be performed by
Mine Dogantan (Piano solo) and himself using the organ to replicate the whole
orchestral part - all fascinating stuff.

He also told of us the plans for 3 more concerts in the next season, and
we discussed the merits of using top notch electric pianos.

As I mentioned, the website address is:

Go take a look!
