Not a reference to the terrible floods that are plaguing that country at the moment but to our brass concert on Monday that has an all-British programme with guests: trumpeter Chris Moyse who hails from England and plays with the HK Phil and pianist Jacqueline Leung, who studied at the UK’s Royal College of Music.
The programme features ten British composers from the seventeenth century to the twenty-first. Not to be missed!

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies (1934- ) – Sonatina for Solo Trumpet
