Scotsman Magazine article about Winterplay

It’s just ten days now until the Winterplay mini-festival of chamber music in the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh. My tally of organisational emails has probably doubled since I last reported that I had written 568 emails relating to the festival – and of course I was only able to search for the ones that contained the word ‘Winterplay’! So in reality there are probably thousands.

Who knew that one had to consider such things as the ingredients of biscuits for workshop participants, permission to take rehearsal photos which might include young people, how to transport large instruments and unload them at the hall without getting a parking ticket, or how to find a local restaurant which will serve food to concert participants after 9.30pm? I’m now longing for the musical part of the project to get going, so that I can remember what all this is actually about.

Last Saturday there was a very nice article about Winterplay in The Scotsman magazine by senior music critic Ken Walton. It didn’t go online until today, but if you click on the link you can read the interview.
