Delighted that @RachPodger is going to join our Chief Exec Crispin Woodhead for tomorrow night's Four Seasons pre-c… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…


This Wednesday, 25 April, saw us at the Queen Elizabeth Hall performing an all-Bach concert, with soloist Ian Bostridge and director Steven Devine. What anyone who was at the concert will have realised though was that Ian was not the only soloist, with the Brandenburg Concerto No.4 and also the Cantata Ich habe genug also having substatial solo parts (aside from the voice, in the case of the Cantata).

Unfortunately however our fantastic soloists were omitted from the evening’s programme, an unfortunate mistake. To remedy it they are listed here instead:

Brandenburg Concerto No.4

Kati Debretzeni violin
Rachel Beckett recorder
Anthony Robson recorder

Ich habe genug

Lisa Beznosiuk flute


  • Rachel Beckett plays beautifully; her posture looks like she has done plenty of Alexander Technique!!! Can you ask her if she has?

  • Luckily, we all knew who they were — and we couldn’t have asked for a more virtuosic set of them! My felicitations.

  • Thanks for your comment, we passed your compliments on to Rachel who tells us she has never done Alexander Technique before!
