In his introduction, Director, 1st Violinist, Tomo Keller remarks … “each concert reflects on aspects of our current crisis musically, with themes of distance, isolation, friendship and regeneration. This first concert ‘Requiem for Our Time’ is dedicated to Martin Loveday, our cellist, who contracted coronavirus while in hospital fighting cancer. We pay tribute to the suffering so many have had to bear.”
