ONLINE MUSIC 1
ENEWS - 3 APRIL 2020
I am sad to say that we have decided that we must cancel the June - the Ferio Saxophone Quartet - and July - Creating Carmen - tours. It is very unlikely that our venues will have reopened and I think we will still be in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. We plan to invite them back in 2021 or 2022.
So many musicians have been working hard to bring their music to us via the internet. They are truly inspiring with their courage to keep playing and working. There are several links below to various performances by some of the players who have already performed for us or who were coming. I will send out links when I receive more information from the many musicians who have performed for CinW.

The music doesn’t stop. A few weeks ago, while the italian government were closing down conservatories, music schools and theatres as a countermeasure to the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), the cellist Riccardo Pes decided to create an online music festival as message of hope and trust that the beauty of the music brings with itself. 'Andrà tutto bene' means everything is going to be alright.
Every concert or musical activity has been suspended and many artists have been compelled to cancel many performances. Riccardo Pes invited 35 musicians from all over the world to stay together and bring music to a virtual audience of classical-music lovers. Riccardo Pes

At a time when so many lives have been put on hold and much of the world is self-isolating, communication has never been more important. A daily posting of live music can help to remind us that we are not alone in facing this crisis.
Bach at 9
Starting on Tuesday, 31 March, Bach at 9 is a series of mini-recitals at 9.00pm (UK-time) every day except Mondays. Each mini-recital will feature one prelude and fugue from Bach’s ‘48’ – his two books of Das wohltemperierte Klavier – introduced and played by Julian Perkins on the clavichord. Reputedly Bach’s favourite keyboard instrument, the intimate tones of the clavichord are ideally suited to home listening.
Duets at 10
Starting on Friday, 3 April, Duets at 10 is a series of mini-recitals at 10.00pm (UK-time) every Friday, Saturday and Sunday following Bach at 9. Emma Abbate and Julian Perkins will introduce and perform keyboard duets by composers including JC Bach, Clementi, Mozart, Weber and Dodgson.
This crisis has decimated the arts. While some organizations have honoured their artists, there are many freelance performers who have received no compensation for lost work. As such, donations are welcome and can be made via a link on the top right of the channel screen. Proceeds will be divided equally between the charity Help Musicians and each performer.
