A running tradition for thousands of First Night

Peter is joined this year by Spanish archguitarist Mané Larregla performing duo arrangements by Scarlatti, Bach and renaissance masters, as well as cellist Quaverly Rothenberg for Philip Glass duo arrangements and renaissance and baroque trios. Finally the trio will be joined by vocalist Lord Russ for Blanchette’s evocative new arrangements of David Bowie songs. This is your chance to end the year on a positive note!
