Philippa Mo recording at Temple

Philippa Mo, recording at Temple Church.

The last year has obviously been a bit catastrophic for musicians (as well as huge numbers of other professions). In the absence of live audiences, many have produced charmingly wonky videos recorded on their phone in their living rooms. The phrase "go big or go home" might seem appropriate in any other situation, but they already were at home.

So I'm very pleased that Philippa Mo aimed high, as she always does. Playing some of the most difficult pieces that exist for the violin, in the unique historic surroundings that is Temple Church, ancient home of the Knights Templar.

Apple and Biscuit Recordings producing sound and video. Looking forward to the results. It sounded incredible from my lofty perch.
