    French flute and piano concert, Open dress rehearsal, with Alice Rosset

    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!
