One Response to Anthony Hewitt in concert

  1. Ian Burns says:

    Many thanks for awarding me the prime A1 seat in the front row on Tuesday evening, thereby enabling me to observe (and profit?) from observing “flutter pedalling” at close quarters and delightful tricks like una corda pedal and fast finger staccato in the Schubert E flat etc. – BUT, tricks apart, what a lovely concert, such an engaging guy – a communicator on all levels!
