    Here's the idea for the concert:
    The Andrews Massey Duo (Emily Andrews on flute and voice and David Massey on guitar) will perform a programme of works based around the idea of storytelling. Mixing classical and folk genres as is becoming the duo's signature, they will perform their own arrangements of British folk tunes from their first CD '...from the Roots', alongside Emily singing some of Dowland's lute songs (most famously his gorgeous lament 'flow my tears'), and some Schubert song arrangements from Winterreise (performed variously on flute and guitar and on solo guitar). Expect a very contrasting programme (both in instrumentation and styles), full of stories to intrigue and excite the imagination!

    This is the first concert pianist Alice Rosset and I will be doing together in our midi tour this week. We have planned a super-varied programme, all from French composers, but mixing flute and piano pieces, voice and piano, solo piano, and a flute and guitar piece (for which my husband, guitarist Francisco Correa, will join me).

    Concerts are free but do please bring money for the retiring collection, which the organisers rely on to help pay for the concert series.

     

    The programme is as follows:

    Roussel - Joueurs de flute
    Débussy -  Reflets dans l'eau (from Images)

    Thomás - Connais tu le pays? (From the opera Mignon)

    Débussy - Hommage à Rameau (from Images)
    Poulenc - Movements Perpétuals
    Caplet - Reverie and Petit Valse

    6.30-7.15pmCraxton Studios, 14 Kidderpore Avenue, London NW3 7SU

    Alice Rosset and I have decided that performing this beautiful programme only once is a shame - hence why we're putting on this open dress rehearsal in North London the night before our lunchtime concert in Leatherhead. We hope that our London friends and family can come, and all unknowns are welcome too!

    The programme is stunning, if I say so myself: Entirely French music, mostly for flute and piano although there is one song in there too. There is so much beautiful French flute music that it was very hard to narrow it down to a 45 minute selection, but here's what we chose:

    Albert Roussel - Joueurs de flute
    Andre Caplet - Reverie and Petit Valse
    Debussy - Reflets dans l'eau from Images
    Ambrose Thomas - Connais Tu? from the opera Mignon
    Poulenc - Sonata for flute and piano

    Please turn up anytime from 6pm, and afterwards we will all go to the nearest pub for a drink and a chat (to get out of the studios as soon after the concert as possible). As I had to hire the room I will be asking a voluntary contribution of £5 from audience members, to cover our expenses for the concert - can slip this to me in the pub afterwards!

    I'll be performing an entirely french programme with the lovely French pianist Alice Rosset in this special Bastille Day concert in Leatherhead. Alice and I met in Jurignac, where I go to teach flute each summer, and we've performed before quite a few times there, but never in UK.

    The programme is stunning, if I say so myself: Entirely French music, mostly for flute and piano although there is one song in there too. There is so much beautiful French flute music that it was very hard to narrow it down to a 45 minute selection, but here's what we chose:

    Please do come if you can. Entry to these concerts is free, but there is a retiring collection as well as tea and coffee afterwards so please bring some money for that.

    We return to this wonderful recital series in the beautiful All Saints Church for a "Summer Spectacular"!

    We will base our programme around "storytelling". We will play a number of different pieces but try to link them all with a little story which we tell - just a few sentenses for each piece to set the scene and move the story along a little.

    I will play flute and sing, and the repertoire will include pieces by Schubert, Mozart, Dowland, Ibert and Elgar.

    10.45-11.30amThe Assembly Rooms, Faversham, Kent

    This is our first Carmen Co show! David Massey and I are joined by guitarist Francisco Correa .

    Carmen is a charater who is well known, and who fascinates both men and women. She's a selfish, ruthless and gorgeous femme fatale who all the men admire, and who switches lovers frequently, leaving destruction in her wake. So we have taken this character, and are setting our own story, with the hoards of admirers represented by the two guitarists, and also the audience. Our Carmen oscillates between the guitarists for her preference, and they in turn compete for her attentions. All of this is portrayed through Spanish music as there's no script. A duet is a conversation, virtuoso passages are showing off or competing. Who will she choose?

    Music performed on two guitars, voice and flute, and includes arias from the opera Carmen, as well as instrumental works by De Falla, Boccherini, Rodrigo and Bizet.

    David and I'll be performing a sea-themed storytelling concert in Southwold Arts Festival. The idea is that we weave together sea-themed pieces such as Takemitsu Toward the Sea, Schubert Das Fischermadchen, Elgar Sea Pictures and Molly Malone into a single story which we tell as we perform... A concert not to miss!
