If you asked me to name 10 favourite artists and recordings, you would likely get a different answer for every day of the year. So, for this Lockdown Listening, I have chosen music which evokes enduring connections and memories for me, through thick and thin. But it’s much harder to have to limit to a top 10 than I thought it would be!
I grew up playing music from a very young age and learned to play the violin and piano. My teachers, notably David Takeno and Marjorie Dutton have been inspirations to me. I was neither talented nor hard working enough to make it my career however, and it is that knowledge that makes me admire all who make music their life’s work. And of course, I am eternally grateful for the pleasure that music gives to all of us.
