John & Julia: 15th concert

John Chen, Julia McCarthy and myself after a performance of TutukakaAlmost a month ago I went to see Julia and John play in Te Awamutu. Their programme was fantastic. I think my favourite must have been Julia playing the Ysaÿe Solo Violin Sonata No 3, her fingers and bow moved like lightening! Yesterday, I heard them play again, this time in Warkworth and the concert was even better. Over the past month they’ve really jelled together and it sounds just awesome. There were a lot of people up from Auckland to support them and it was great catching up with everyone. Chamber Music New Zealand have posted some reviews on their website here.

In other news, I’ve put the finishing touches on my Fanfare for Manukau for the Manukau City Symphony Orchestra and sent it off earlier this week.
