“I have been delighted to have been associated with the “Harpsichord en fête” concerts which the Institut français d’Ecosse has organised in recent years. These have afforded valuable concert opportunities for younger performers, as well as offering concerts to distinguished established musicians. In addition, the series has featured harpsichords from the priceless collection of early keyboards at the University’s St Cecilia’s Hall. It’s a brilliant enterprise!”  - John Kitchen
