Best-selling author Peter Robinson is a regular visitor to our concerts. On 20 November [CORRECTION - new date expected soon] he will be Michael Berkeley's guest on Radio 3's Private Passions.
Leeds-born Peter is the author of the well-known Inspector Banks novels, set in the fictional town of Eastvale, a sort-of Richmond, sort-of Ripon, with a definite hinterland of Swaledale. Based in Toronto, he lives in Richmond for much of the year - and at those times, he's an enthusiastic visitor to our concerts.
Peter's Private Passions are embargoed, unfortunately, but we do know that we'll hear performances by Imogen Cooper and the Takács Quartet, as well as Poulenc's Wind Sextet. And here is a world exclusive: "I had picked the Kronos Quartet version of Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Purple Haze’ but Michael Berkeley snuck in the original Hendrix version to close the show instead."
And on that bombshell...
