This evening some of the members of my writers’ group came together with three musicians to give us a session of music, interspersed with poetry and other literary readings. The idea, launched by a friend, Nigel Clarke, a Brussels-based composer, is to perform chamber music in the setting for which it was written – small rooms. Not for nothing is it known as ‘the music of friends’. To complete the feast, a guest artist hung her work on the living room walls. It all went together very well and left us all thinking that this was an experience to repeat. That’s Jeannette, John, Leila and Martin in the pictures.
