Talk and Concert

As part of a three days of teaching, examining and lecturing at Birmingham Conservatoire, Gavin will have a pubic conversation with his old friend Howard Skempton – who he first knew in 1966. Following this, at 7.30, there will be a concert of composiitons organised by conservatoire students that will include two of Gavin’s pieces The Last Days, for two violins, and A Family Likeness for recorder consort. This will be the first time that Gavin has heard the recorder piece live, and over twnety years since he heard the violin poieces!
