Any recordings you have done that could be described as Classical, post in here.
Includes pieces one would only loosely call 'Classical' as they depart somewhat from what the composer intended.

Hi Val,
I'm sorry but I haven't still got the dots for La Cinquantaine.
I used to have for playing at weddings.
Pity really. if I had I might have played it better.

Hi Don,

Enjoyed that piece. Now, Bronwyn and I need you to come up to Weston in August 2018 and play that piece for us, as it is our 50th Wedding Anniversary then. The day we were married was very windy, and we have pictures of Bronwyn's veil going vertically up into the air. In the end, for the photographs, they had to hold her veil down with stones!

Another memorable incident. Bronwyn's home was a caravan site, and we had a Mini, so in order to make sure we could 'get away' smoothly afterwards, I put it in her Dad's garage, locked the door and kept the key in my pocket. Imagine my horror when I unlocked the garage door to find no Mini! While we were at the Reception, the caravaners had physically lifted the Mini out of the garage and dumped it in the flowerbed behind the garage! Our best man had to get them all together and get it lifted back onto the driveway.

Hi Don. Not one I’ve heard before but seems like a minuet I can imagine people in old fashioned costumes bit like the Tudors dancing along. Enjoyed my listen. John
