I am so excited to introduce you to this fabulous video suite, composed in 2020 lockdowns for remote production by students of my former Cambridge college.  They have made a completely captivating production, which you can now watch HERE.

It was filmed in 2021 and put together in 2022.  The acting, playing and cinematography are by students and fellows of the college, including poet-in-residence Dr Mariah Whelan and director of music Dr Daniel Trocmé-Latter, with cameo role by honorary fellow Dame Evelyn Glennie! 

A Homerton Parade is a musical setting of college archive documents from 1894 up to the 1918 pandemic, which is eerily similar to our recent experience.  Along with the extraordinary strictness and camaraderie of the then all-female teaching college, we find hilarious musical jokes and student diaries.  Find out plenty more here (and see the video).

... Here are two current themes in Writings and Projects:

-Music for each season:  a series of articles using a wide range of music, with all listening-links, to delve behind the obvious about what each season of the year means to us, culturally, emotionally and in nature.  Latest:  Summer Music.

-Rhodri invites you to encounter the unique and life-enhancing work of Geoffrey Bush (1920-98),

putting together helpful writings, events, and recordings for Bush's  100th anniversary year.

Three 'Conservation Pieces'

This intimate and captivating online piano recital is now available to watch for free!  Swanland I, Swanland II and Extinct from Conservation Pieces were expertly interpreted by Natalia Williams-Wandoch (@NataliaWWPiano) in a very unique recital titled The Swan's Way given for the unique nexTus Festival, 9th-22nd May 2021.  The music is choreographed with stunning photography by Paula Cooper (@iceniphoto) and a poem by scientist-poet Lynne Wycherley.  The programme also included very sincere and spirited performances of Boulanger, Brahms and Bach.  It was featured again within September's Groeneveld Festival in the Netherlands.  Rhodri is still feeling delighted to have been able to collaborate with these artists in this beautiful way.

Full video (short recital) and trailer video, plus Natalia's most recent filmed piano recital
