Melvyn Tan, pianist

“Each respect the brevity of the aria, and are in many ways a very personal musical letter to Judith. There is however a huge variety of moods: some are quirky and humorous, others more sombre; some pay tribute to the acoustics of the church, others to the choral writing of Bach. Each one of them a unique gem in a wonderful collection that commemorates Judith’s precious involvement within the organisation she led.”


The Spitalfields world premiere was kindly supported by George Law who explains his motivation to support this particular performance in this way:

‘Having worked with Judith for 14 years as voluntary worker, member of the Council and, finally, as Chairman of the Council of Spitalfields Festival, I wished to add my personal tribute to Judith's achievements during her 19 years at the Festival, the greatest of which was to create and maintain the unique balance between the contemporary and more traditional classical music which it still obtains today. I also hope that by supporting this concert personally, my example may inspire others to do the same; sponsorship of concerts should not just be left to corporations and charitable institutions.’
