Special Raymond Gubbay Champagne Classical Gala Concert on 21 October 2006, Symphony Hall, Birmingham

It is always tremendously enjoyable performing concertos for Raymond Gubbay, and thrilling too to be part of the fortieth birthday concert in symphony hall, Birmingham this Autumn with Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue' under Christopher Warren-Green. 'Rhapsody in Blue' is always inspiring to tackle, and in fact there were three collaborations with Chris Warren-Green for Gubbay at the Albert Hall during the 'Millenium Proms' on 30 and 31 Dec 1999. Even further back, my Royal Festival Hall Debut (also Raymond Gubbay Debut) featured the same work in May 1989(this time with Bramwell Tovey conducting). Fantastic that after forty years, Raymond Gubbay continues to grow and develop from strength to strength:
