A pleasant summer’s work – the fourth series of Chord of the Week, part of BBC 2’s PromsExtra; talking about counterpoint with Sir Mark Tully for Radio 4’s Something Understood; dissecting Parry’s Jerusalem (all over again) on The Last Night of the Proms; recording the complete songs of Sterndale Bennett and of Edward Lear (yes, him – his friend Tennyson liked Lear’s settings of his verse better than any others); concerts in France with David Wilson-Johnson; and working at the National Theatre with the cast of Amadeus.
