I am extremely flattered that the internationally known composer Carlotta Ferrari wrote a piece especially for me in April 2015. The Ricercare e Canzona is written in the early style but using modern harmonic language and I was delighted to play it in my recital at Pevensey on May 15th, 2015. I shall be including this, and her Preludio, Fuga and tarantella in future concerts.
