Transcript

I was an undergraduate at King’s College and it was then that I started going back to Kettle’s Yard. As well as the evening concerts, there was a lunchtime series which was really run by students at Cambridge and which we’d used to get the chance to play. I remember the first time I went back there to play, I think it must have been in my first year at King’s and I was asked to do a solo recital at Kettle’s Yard. It was such a…. even at that stage, I remember feeling this real sense of attachment to the place and this kind of almost nostalgia going back there. That was a really special occasion and I played there maybe five or six times when I was at university there, both solo recitals and chamber music. And it just always… I always felt really happy playing there. There was something about the atmosphere and the way it made me feel that was conducive to making me feel really comfortable on stage there. Partly, I suppose, because it brought back those memories of childhood, before you know how to get nervous for a concert and things and, you know, then when you’re older, you’re very much more aware of what you’re doing. But Kettle’s Yard is like this sort of haven, still is really.
