Yesterday’s Music in New Malden concert (the first of 2016) featured arrangements of two much-loved Mozart pieces: his Clarinet Quintet (in an anonymous version for basset clarinet and piano of 1809), and his last Piano Concerto, no 27 (in a new arrangement for piano and wind sextet by Robert Percival).

We had our largest ever crowd – a full appreciative house who were reluctant to let us escape afterwards! We’re very appreciative of you too: thank-you for your commitment and obvious enthusiasm for our concerts.
The charity proceeds this time were the largest ever raised in our series at well over £550 – split between two organisations providing support to those in Cumbria and Yorkshire whose lives have been devastated by the recent floods.
