It’s a good day at work when you get to sit in the midst of amazing players making a wonderful sound. This experience with the Carducci Quartet with Matthew Barley, playing an arrangement of John Metcalfe’s music by Misha Mullov-Abbado certainly meets those criteria.
John’s album ‘The Appearance of Colour’ is available as a high quality download from Bowers & Wilkins ‘Society of Sound’

There’s something magical about Spiro, if you ever get the chance to see them play I urge you to take it.There’s a clip I shot at The Old Queens Head in London last year, that whilst technically poor (our sound recording failed and it’s just a static hand held shot) definitely has it. That performance in London actually came after I had shot The City And The Stars - there was something about it that I realised I didn’t have, and so the footage has slowly matured on my system ever since.
The release of the album from which this track is taken, Kalidophonica, in the U.S. this week prompted me to reassess and take a fresh approach to the material. Hopefully some of their magic has escaped the darkened space where I captured them last year.
