March 2011

From March 4th 6th the first Barrow River Arts Festival took place at Borris House, Co. Carlow. Malcolm took part in two of the concerts. Firstly with Maya Homburger and Barry Guy performing music by Biber, Muffat, Barry Guy, Francois Couperin and J.S. Bach. In the second concert he accompanied the Dutch baritone Maarten Koningsberger in songs by Henry Purcell and other 17th century composers and played a Prelude for solo harpsichord by d’Anglebert and a suite by Henry Purcell.

Malcolm’s recent performance with baroque violinist Rachel Podger and recorder player Pamela Thorby, presented jointly by East Cork Early Music and Cork Orchestral Society at CIT Cork School of Music, was a huge success: ....... ‘a concert that delighted from start to finish’ - Declan Townsend (The Examiner 29/3/2011)
