In a restaurant overlooking Vicenza I ordered a prime porterhouse steak. It was grilled over a wood fire, served on a white plate and accompanied by a slice of lemon. It was the best steak I have ever eaten. If it had been served in a French restaurant, it probably would have been covered in one of many traditional sauces. But no sauce. This was the best meat cooked to perfection.

When I put together a program for the Australian Chamber Choir, the aim is to present it in a way that captures as closely as possible the essence of the composer’s intention. The music should speak for itself. I want the finest music, presented without fuss or distraction – or sauce! Why not come with us to Europe in 2019? Read more here …

The unaccompanied works of the evening maintained perfect tune … as the choir wended its way with the greatest security through music of many periods and styles … more” Echo, Darmstadt, 20.07.17
