Now in its 10th year, the ongoing musical partnership with clarinetist Janet Hilton is going from strength to strength. Last week we played a duo recital as part of the 2016 Xinghai Conservatory of Music Festival in Guangzhou, China. It has been a great privilege to perform in the beautiful chamber music hall of the conservatory on Wednesday, September 21st and to meet so many friendly and welcoming people. A proud alumnus of the Royal College of Music, I feel honored to be part of a duo representing this institution at the festival. I also enjoyed giving a chamber music master class on the day after the concert.
