Nicola Matteis, Andrea Amati, St Michael’s Cornhill 2nd May 2013

First afternoon exploring the combintion of Andrea Amatio, Antonino Airenti, Nicola Matteis and the sublime space of St Michaels Cornhill 2 5 2013

 

Today, I spent three idyllic hours working in astonishing architecture, acoustic, and atmosphere of St Michaels Cornhill. This is moving towards a project, bringing together the music of Nicola Matteis  in a space which seems right, and the exploration of the ca 1560-70 Amati which I am playing.
