New piano music CD recorded at award winning Potton Hall Studio

                                                                    

In February 2012, the first heavy snows in the UK arrived, and the news warned of travel restrictions. I, however, needed to get to Potton Hall Recording Studio, which is in a very rural area of England, down a lane, off a lane etc etc, in a very remote area of deepest Suffolk. Mind you, there is very good reason for Potton Hall being so hidden: excellent for ‘silence’!! Just what I needed for recording my next CD: Mirrors of Light which features my new piano music.


‘Silence’ and of course a rather special piano to record on!  Potton Hall,was able to provide exactly that and more. It was perfect! and I have fallen in love with the place. So have a host of top recording piano artists which include Vladimir Ashkenazy, and Martin Roscoe, who both personally had a say in choosing the Steinway piano there. Not surprisingly Potton is used by a host of major classic
al labels including EMI, Decca, Harmonia Mundi, BIS, Sony, Hyperion, Chandos and more.


This has bee
n a dream of a place for me. To have my new piano music recorded in such beautiful conditions, working with Swiss concert pianist Patricia Siffert, and recording engineer Alan Hames.


I am very fortunate in finding Patricia to work with. Her sensitive, warm, powerful playing is just what I am looking for in my music. Patricia Siffert is a concert pianist from Switzerland. This will be the third CD she has recorded for me, but for the first time, this CD will be entirely featuring Patricia on piano. Alan Hames, too has been the recording engineer on my previous CDs, so knows my music well, but this is the first time working at Potton Hall, and not surprisingly was very delighted and inspired by the venue and experience. Also a big thank you to Helen and Jeremy Hayes at Potton for giving us such a warm welcome and wonderful stay there. To learn more, please visit: www.pottonhall.com


Well, before we travelled, yes, the snow melted, and warm sunshine prevailed, so the journey to Suffolk was good, and our time there even included a wonderful day by the sea at Southwold. This seemed to perfectly conclude what was been a most special experience to start the production of my new CD.


I am now pleased to announce that “Mirrors of Light” was released in June 2012 and is now available for
purchase via this website.
