Hi all, as there are a few fellow posters from the United Kingdom on here, and in case anyone is interested, I thought I would give advance notice of two concerts I'll be giving as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this year. The venue is St Mark's artSpace (Fringe venue 125), 7 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2DP. (Map: http://ed.thestage.co.uk/venues/st-marks-artspace )

The programme will be as follows:

My composition: Fantasy on Bellini's La Sonnambula
Bellini-Fumagalli: Casta Diva (Norma)
Verdi-Liszt: Concert Fantasy on Ernani
Bellini-Thalberg: A te, o cara (I Puritani)
Rossini-Thalberg: Fantasy on Moses in Egypt

============= Intermission =================

Verdi-Cziffra: Concert Fantasy on Il Trovatore
Wagner-Brassin: Magic Fire Scene (Die Walkure)
Wagner-Liszt: Isolde's Liebestod (Tristan und Isolde)
My composition (genre pastiche): Thalbergiana

In the long run, any words about music are less important than the music. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not worth talking to (Shostakovich)
