Today - Mother's Day - I am excited to publish my new music video of Cláudio Santoro's 3rd 'Paulistana' for solo piano, dedicated to my mum, and set to clips of our old home videos.
2019 also marks the birthday centenary of this special Brazilian composer.
Starring (in order of appearance): my father, John Glaisher, Me, my mother, Maria Nieves Glaisher, my uncle Harold, my cousin, Neftali Madrigal, my sister, Madeleine Glaisher, my auntie Magda Hernández Febles, my sister, Jane Houldsworth, my brother, Mik Glaisher, my playmate, Suzie, my sister, Caroline Cornish, my grandmother, Martina Febles, my grandfather, Jesús Hernández, my brother Paul Glaisher Hernández...and the great Yorkshire countryside. Thank you to James Bacon for recording the audio, and to Paul Glaisher Hernández for helping me with the video editing. ***WARNING*** Uncensored !! This film contains explicit images of me in my underwear and scenes of unbridled sentimentality. Unsuitable viewing for anyone with a low cuteness threshold.
I am honoured to be organising this gorgeous upcoming event at St Paul's Covent Garden on behalf of the Cabildo de Lanzarote, where the vivacious Lanzarote Ensemble will offer an evening of musical folly and indulgence on the 14th March as they make their UK debut.
Featuring the work Salieri once described as conveying ‘God’s voice on Earth’, Mozart’s iconic 'Serenade No. 10', this sumptuous programme also includes a UK premiere by the ensemble’s founder and director, Ayoze Rodríguez, entitled 'Variaciones sobre las folías'; an expansive journey from the famous ‘folías de España’ of the Spanish Renaissance, through to the Baroque and beyond, to the contemporary folk folías of the composer’s native Canary Islands.
The Lanzarote Ensemble is an exciting new chamber orchestra established to showcase the very best classical talent of this enchanting and vibrantly musical island.
