On Sunday 16 September, Australian violinist Annabelle Swainston (currently on Fellowship with the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra) and I performed a recital featuring Schumann’s Sonata for Violin and Piano in D minor, Op. 121 and Ravel’s Tzigane, as well as some Bach, Gershwin and more, at Whittaker’s Musical Museum on Waiheke Island, NZ.  It was a lovely afternoon, with a highlight of a pre-concert beach trip! and it was exciting to have the opportunity to perform on Paderewski’s piano.
