I must begin with a tribute to Lorina Gore, who recorded the role of Lucy for my opera Dracula a week or so ago. Lorina was absolutely marvellous, glorious voice, accurate and so much dramatic character as well as beauty! Only the role of Dracula to go now.
Lorina will also be recording my Three Poems by Gwen Harwood early next year when convenient. I can hardly wait!
Sad news about the death of an old friend and supporter, David Elsworth, aged 91. The Elsworth family have been friends of mine since the early 80s.
As David was a fine pianist, I have been asked to play something at the funeral, which of course I will do.
