Jenny Jackson

I am a composer (yikes)

A new piece. At last.

I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have finally completed a new piece. And this recording of the first performance last Friday isn’t bad! What you miss by not being at the concert is the visual aspect of only seeing the cello soloist and hearing the other parts off stage but it still works, I think. The fantastic cello playing is Charlie Hardwick in action: the piece was written very much for her to play.
