I can’t help think that sometimes – let’s say often – the red carpet misses a trick; the urge to conform to stereotypical beauty too strong, the risk of stepping outside of prescribed boxes too big. And then, when those sitting at the top of the social triangle are fearful, the emotion gets passed down and what should actually be celebrated, gets missed. I will never be an Oscar winning actress, but I hope that if I was, I would wear one of Rasa Vilcinskaite’s incredible creations with pride and honour and quite frankly, wow the world.

With no hope of a red carpet, maybe I could swing one for Sunday lunch?

The work of a musician revolves around people and communication, which means Covid has crippled the industry. However, nothing can stop the communication – for those missing their culture, my sister – Harriet Mackenzie, internationally renowned concerto soloist who has performed across five continents – is giving a special, hands on concert –
‘Thanks to all the wonderful people who supported my concert in November, I’m doing another concert online from here on 14th February! To thank my audience, it’s Audience Choice! Here are the options:
Another Solo Bach work- Another Baroque work such as Telemann or Locatelli
An Ysaye Solo Sonata
a Contemporary work- Kriesler
Recitative Scherzo Caprice
A solo Piazzolla Tango-
A Paganini Caprice
Another romantic work like the Paganini I played in November, which has accompaniment, but works well without it.
Massenet – Meditation, Ponce – Estrellita could work well?
a composition of my own- an improvisation
– my own solo arrangement of a jazz standard.- my own arrangement of a folk/world music melody, Kosmos style, but for solo violin.
Please do let me know if you have any preferences! – email@example.com
Love from Spetses,
Harriet x ‘
